The Wakulla County School Board and Superintendent applaud the dedication and energetic contributions Mr. Holmes tirelessly gives each day on behalf of the students, parents and Wakulla County community. He is an integral part of the success of our school system.
The June Employee of the Month is David Lee Holmes, Jr., Shadeville Elementary School Custodian. Holmes, nominated by his supervisor D’arcy Brazier, has been serving the students of the Wakulla County School District since 1989, more than 25 years.
Originally from Jefferson County, Florida, Holmes grew up in Monticello and graduated from Jefferson High School. He enjoys working and providing services to the staff and students of the school system. Holmes shares, “The team effort of working to accomplish the daily tasks of maintaining a clean environment conducive to learning for the children, makes every day meaningful to me.”
The most exciting part of his job is the annual festival at the elementary school. With enthusiasm he says, “Seeing the excitement of the students and the participation of the community makes me realize what a special place the Wakulla County School District is.”
Shadeville Elementary School Operation Foreman D’Arcy Brazier adds, “David is an important member of our Shadeville team. He is well liked by the teachers and students and will do what needs to be done without having to be told. He takes pride in helping make the school look its best inside and out. I’m proud to have David as a member of the Shadeville team.”
The Shadeville Warrior Custodial Team was in attendance to not only applaud Holmes recognition but to also receive the coveted annual Magic Carpet Award as well. The Magic Carpet Award criteria includes lighting maintenance, yard and exterior appearance of the school, cleanliness, attendance and safety.
