MACOMB, MI — Chippewa Valley Schools says goodbye to not one but two of its head custodians, as Bob and Denise LaRosa retire, according to the Macomb Patch.
Bob and Denise, the head custodians at Mohawk and Cherokee elementary schools, respectively, retire with a combined 49 years of service to the district, the article stated.
"I''ve had the pleasure of working with Bob since 1995, and working with Denise since she chose to leave the dark side — the Transportation Department — and come over to the custodial side in 2000," said Larry Kleinhans, district custodial supervisor.
"They are both dedicated, hardworking employees that have fought for what they thought was best — for what was best for their schools. They wanted the best equipment; they wanted the best supplies; they wanted coworkers that knew what to do and could keep up with them and, most of all, they wanted to provide the safest environment for their students," Kleinhans added.
According to the article, the LaRosas plan to fill their retirement with travel and winter mornings spent sleeping in.
