Lead Workers, Third-Shift Custodial
I have a lot of appreciation for all of our lead workers for their assistance in adapting to the new changes on campus this past year. They have stepped up to these challenges and their support and leadership have greatly helped operations continue smoothly through difficult times.
I would like to specifically thank new lead worker Jason Kauffold for his assistance managing the snow removal operations this past month through some particularly heavy snow, freezing temperatures, and high winds. Despite this, the third-shift crews I’ve worked with and observed around campus have been putting forth a strong effort with an attention for detail this year. Thank you all.

Shout-out to John Gausman and Mike Vanderwegen for the work on Rooms 3310 and 4310 at Computer Science; they look wonderful! The extra work on the furniture makes them look new again, and certainly makes the room much more inviting.

Custodial staff at Law Library
“Well Dennis, your crew did a really good job of trying to fix whatever happened! Looking at these pictures, other than 958, the smears and white powder look almost all removed. I don’t know what that was but I’m impressed your crew was able to do what they did with it!”

A big thank you goes out to carpenters Brian Meyer and Chad Allen and sheet metal workers Justin Zitlow, Pete Cooley, and Charles Chladil for their work on the gutters in Fluno Center Garage Lot 83. Water had been traveling down the concrete columns of the garage but thanks to their help, the water now successfully travels down the gutters. Their solution helped the university avoid a massive repair expense. Great work, everyone!
