CFS Operations Honors Staff with Excellence Awards

Houston ISD’s Construction and Facilities Services Operations recently honored outstanding employees during three separate recognition ceremonies at the Delmar Field House. There are more than 1,200 custodians, plant operators and grounds crews who serve classroom needs and attend to building cleanliness on a daily basis.

“I was asked to speak to the hardest working employees in HISD, and I want to thank all of you for your commitment to our schools,” said HISD Superintendent Dr. Terry Grier, as he opened the ceremonies.

The finalists were selected by staff supervisors, using criteria such as attendance and work performance, among others, to determine the highest rankings. Each winner was singled out by their supervisors and managers as the best examples of customer service excellence.

“There just are not enough awards to pass out today. There are so many great employees in our department,” said Brian Busby, operations and custodial senior manager.
