Richard has been selected by his peers because he exemplifies the term “team player”. In a time when every department has experienced cutbacks, we have been no different and are expected to do more with less. No job is too small, too large, too clean or too dirty when it comes to this individual’s willingness to lend a helping hand. In addition to freely offering help to any of his coworkers, our employee has also taken on the specific task of insuring that all the irrigation systems throughout the district are up and running. While this was once a job that was contracted out by a vendor; we felt that we could do the job more effectively and efficiently while saving the school district money. All of these have proved to be true due to the pride and dedication of this individual.
