EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH
ANNAPOLIS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Annapolis Elementary is an innovative school in a traditional setting. Although the building, over one hundred years old, is the oldest public school in the state, it was completely renovated as of 2014. The facilities are state of the art and gorgeous! And who is responsible for keeping this gem of a building shiny and gorgeous? Our employee of the month for February, Chief Custodian, Justin List!
Mr. List has shown great knowledge of the workings of this historic building. He has repaired, replaced, and redone many areas of the building that needed attention. He has organized closets by cleaning, painting, organizing, and making them usable for additional storage. If he spots an area that is worn down from everyday use of the building, he doesn’t waste any time sprucing it up with a coat of paint.
Justin List works his carpentry magic in every area of the building. When the Physical Education department needed more storage space for equipment, he put together some additional shelving that really made a difference. As more and more books became available to the school, Justin made display shelving in the reading room to accommodate the vast number of books. The server room also received his attention with the addition of shelving to lift machines off the cement floor, making the room more accessible for repair people. But perhaps Justin’s most special accomplishment was the amazing refurbishing of a PTA-donated bench in honor of a former student that sits proudly in front of the school.
When it comes to the school grounds, Mr. List is just as attentive. He works tirelessly to power wash and clean all areas outside the building. Trees and bushes are always kept trimmed and tidy. When the 5th grade students revitalized a garden in honor of a former staff member, Mr. List willingly took on the task of making sure the garden was pruned and watered over the summer.
Mr. List always wears a smile and works with a true “can do” attitude no matter what is asked of him. He is friendly and welcoming to teachers, staff, students, and all who visit the building. His work ethic is of the highest quality, and as a graduate of Anne Arundel County Public Schools, the condition of Annapolis Elementary shows Justin’s allegiance to his home county.
Justin List – you are one hundred percent professional at all times and your professionalism shows in all that you do in the building. You take great pride in your work and you are a tremendous asset to Annapolis Elementary School. So for these reasons and more, the Board of Education is honored to recognize you Employee of the Month for February 2017. Congratulations!
