Oct. 2 is National Custodial Worker’s Recognition Day, and Atlanta Public Schools is grateful to all of our maintenance staff who work tirelessly to keep our schools and offices clean.
This year, we give special recognition to Mr. T. Roberts of Cleveland Avenue Elementary School.
Roberts doesn’t like to be in the spotlight, declining an interview and photo shoot. Though a man of few words, he has enormous dedication to his South Atlanta community.
“Mr. Roberts is dedicated to the community because he lives in this community,” said Dr. Anyee` D. Payne, Cleveland Avenue Elementary principal. “He goes above and beyond to make sure that we have a safe and clean learning environment for all students and staff.”
His Cleveland Avenue colleagues appreciate him so much that they requested a proclamation after electing him Education Support Person of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year.
Roberts is a native of Atlanta and an APS alumnus, graduating from Walter F. George High School, which is now South Atlanta High School.
Thank you, Mr. Roberts, and thank you to all of our custodial workers who make APS a cleaner and more productive environment for work and education!
