CHARLESTON, SC — John Wright could make more money doing something else, but he''s found his calling as a custodial worker at James Simons Elementary
, according to The Post and Courier
Wright has spent more than a decade in this school, working so students have a safe, clean environment where they can learn and grow and, in return, they give him moments and memories, the article noted.
Wright worries about how children will be affected now that the Charleston County School Board
has given its go-ahead for a private company to manage the district''s custodians, the article stated.
According to the article, every school still will have a custodian next year, but those workers may not be the same as the 86 who are employed by the district now.
District leaders plan to work with the new service provider to see whether they can transfer existing personnel, but there are no guarantees, the article added.
