Matt Simmons (Custodial)

The Finishing Trades would like to thank Custodian Matt Simmons for the outstanding service he continually gives to our shop areas. The Carpenter Shop in particular creates an unbelievable amount of dust daily and Matt keeps this space in excellent shape, contributing to a safer, more efficient, and happier work environment for our Carpenters.

Matt’s work is a critical part of the success of the Carpenter Shop. We appreciate his work very much.
