CVSan Holds 13th Annual Recognition Event for Castro Valley School Custodians

School custodians go out of their way to help schools reduce waste. Schools in Castro Valley have high recycling and composting or “diversion” rates (average 90%), in large part due to the efforts of custodians. Castro Valley Sanitary District (CVSan) recognized school custodians with the 13th Annual CVSan Custodian Recognition Luncheon at Canyon Middle School on Monday, June 3, 2024. All Castro Valley school custodians and school administration were invited.  

Gift cards were given out to all custodial staff attending and individual awards and gift certificates were given out to the following custodians (see photo below):

  • The Green Ribbon Partner Award: Anthony Hesson of Chabot Elementary School.
  • The Dan Curry Program of the Year Award: Kim Cannon of Independent Elementary School.
  • The Good Green Attitude Award: Chris Louie of Redwood High School.

More than 60 people were in attendance, including most of the Castro Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) custodians and maintenance staff, Director of Maintenance Operations and Transportation Aaron Ackerman, and CVUSD Board Trustee Gary Howard. CVSan Board Members Ralph Johnson, Dave Sadoff, and Kristy (Dooman) Woerz, as well as CVSan’s General Manager Roland Williams and other CVSan staff were also in attendance.
