MENOMONEE FALLS, WI — One reporter went back to high school and spent a day behind the scenes with the man who makes sure Menomonee Falls High School runs smoothly, according to the Menomonee Falls Now.

unsung hero 1Danielle Switalski spent a day with Jeff Knodl, the lead day custodian for the high school, and saw firsthand how Knodl spends his eight hours a day fixing things, scheduling employees and managing a building of more than 1,200 people, the article stated.

According to the article, Knodl does his back-breaking job all day and then goes home to 11-year-old twins, and he does it all with a smile.

Knodl told Switalski that the high school is the community’s building and he just works in it, the article noted.

Knodl takes immense pride in caring for the high school and it shows, not only the clean product he delivers, but the way he presents himself to everyone he passes in the hallway, the article added.
