Lynette Pryor, a custodian at Georgetown Middle School is a top ten finalist for the first Custodian of the Year award. The award aims to shine a spotlight on those who truly rule the school – the custodian, according to a press release from Cintas Corporation, the company sponsoring the contest. “We’ve received some amazing stories of heroism, compassion and friendship,” said Dave Mesko, senior director of marketing. Pryor, who has been with the district for 19 years “always has a smile for all of the children and teachers, and is loved by all who know her,” district officials wrote in her nomination form. “At our school she is one of our greatest assets. When other janitors have problems such as stripping and waxing their hall she helps them after she cleans her own and asks nothing in return. She believes in the “golden rule” and models to our children every day. She is a great role model.” Voting for the nominees continues until Dec. 2. Votes can be cast at the website www.cintas.com/janitoroftheyear. The 2013 Custodian of the Year will receive a $2,500 cash prize along with $2,500 in Cintas products and services for his or her school.
