Custodian a case of perseverance

May 7, 2012

CLEARFIELD, UT — Jeffrey Weston has overcome some great personal challenges during his 30 years as a custodian for Clearfield High School, according to the Standard-Examiner.

Weston''s greatest challenge by far has been dealing with his cerebral palsy, a disease that impacts an individual’s motor skills, the article stated.

According to the article, while the condition limits his ability to walk and talk it has not interfered with his ability to serve students and faculty.

After graduating from Clearfield High School in 1985, Weston stayed on as a custodian and, since then, has seen many students and fellow custodians come and go, but his popularity among students has remained a constant, the article noted.

"He has become the school mascot, so to speak, and now he''s just a part of the school," said Jan Boyington, the community relations director at Clearfield High School.
