Waco ISD's Maintenance, Grounds and Custodial crews for the first time ever discussed a gift exchange for the holidays. Then James Jupe, a 36-year District employee, came up with a better idea. At a Leadership Meeting those departments decided rather than give gifts to themselves, they would raise money to buy gifts for KWTX-TV's Toys for Tots drive. Each day someone from the department would bring in a gift or a cash donation to help, and Friday morning we captured a picture of them proudly showing how they will be making Christmas for other families one of the best ever!
It's not just the holidays where these crews go above and beyond. They recently were named #1 in the state among more than 300 school districts for completing work order requests in seven days or less! They keep our offices and campuses going all year long.
Thank you Maintenance, Grounds and Custodial crews, and Merry Christmas!
