Jerry Lansang, the head custodian at Maplewood Elementary School in Puyallup, is well-loved and highly respected by students and staff alike. Each year the Puyallup School District recognizes the exemplary efforts put forth by the hundreds of classified employees from custodians, to paraeducators, to counselors and interpreters. The district honored Lansang and Firgrove Elementary paraeducator Carie Sauders for its 2015 class. My article appeared in the March 11 print edition of the Puyallup Herald and the story linked to the Herald Facebook page reached more than 1,900 readers. Way to go, Jerry and Carie!
