Custodian Carmela Roe Earns Excellence Award


School custodians are often the first people in the building and the last to leave. Reeds Spring Middle School’s Carmela Roe has been working so hard that she earned the district’s Excellence Award.

 “Anytime you see Carmela in the halls she is busy doing something, the lady never stops,” said paraprofessional Andi Watson.

Roe is new to the district this year. It’s clear to see that she’s quickly made an impression. 

RSMS librarian Aimee Dillon said, “At the start of the school year, I was preparing to dust all the shelves in the library. After a few shelves, I noticed there wasn’t any dust. Carmela had cleaned all the shelves! In all my years of teaching, I’ve never seen a custodian who works harder and does a better job!”

“The dedication and pride she takes in doing a great job are unmatched,” said teacher Jen Mayfield. “She can be seen cleaning the tops of doors and window seals. She is always on the go cleaning something.”

Reeds Spring Excellence Awards are new this year. They replaced the former Employee of the Month and Teacher of the Month awards. The nomination process is now open to students, staff, parents, and the community.
