September 18, 2009
MONTGOMERY, AL — Reggie Wilkins, a custodian at the University of Auburn at Montgomery, is thought of by students and staff as more than just a "janitor," according to United Press International.
Wilkins, who began his position at the University of Auburn at Montgomery in November of 2006, works 40 hours per week in day and night shifts cleaning restrooms, making sure floors are spotless through sweeping and mopping, dusts pictures and anything else that falls under the "cleaning" umbrella, the story stated.
According to the story, Wilkins describes his job as anything but menial, a perspective that helped earn him special recognition from the university community.
Wilkins was named 2008 Employee of the Quarter and Employee of the Year, receiving a plaque and a check for his ongoing effort, the story noted.
Wilkins said: "Cleaning up doesn’t bother me. People are nice to me and speak when they see me. It’s an all around good job."
Wilkins, who considers himself a shopaholic, said that his three children are his pride and joy, and although he enjoys his job, he does it all for them, the story added.
