The 2013 Housekeeping Excellence Awards were given out tonight at the board of education meeting. The award is the result of inspections of every school twice a year looking at 72 specific check points that include how clean classrooms, hallways and bathrooms are inside the school. The inspectors also look at landscaping around each school as well as how clean the parking lot and front entrances are.
A winner is selected for elementary, middle and high schools. The winner of the elementary category is Joe Flower and Ezra Lewis of Sheldon Child Development Center. Colleen Riggs and Marc Garcia from Robinson won the middle school award. In the high school category, the award went to Gary Sumner and Mike Benkosky of Capital City Schools.
