Custodian Juan Amezcua (second to the left) was awarded the 2018 Exemplary Classified Employee of the Year at the Los Angeles Unified School District board meeting on May 8.

Dedication, hard work and commitment are just a few of the many qualities custodian Juan Amezcua puts into his work every day to keep the campus in top shape.

“Juan has stepped up over and over again during very difficult times at our school,” Principal Deb Smith said. “Juan immediately steps up and takes responsibility.”

Amezcua received the 2018 Exemplary Classified Employee of the Year at the Los Angeles Unified School District board meeting on May 8. He was presented with a certificate by Personnel Director Karla Gould and Interim Superintendent Vivian Ekchian for his dedication and hardwork.

“Juan Amezcua represents the very best of what we expect from our classified employees,” Ekchian said.

Plant Manager Sal Rivas submitted an “Everyday Heroes” recognition message recognizing Amezcua’s persistence and dedication to the maintenance of Daniel Pearl Magnet High School. The Everyday Heroes Recognition Program is a message of appreciation sent to LAUSD employees for their exceptional work around the school. Through these submitted recognition messages, employees are selected for a nomination for Classified Employee of the Year.

“He takes pride in his work,” Rivas said. “He demonstrates a genuine passion for helping students and goes above and beyond in supporting his school community.”

Amezcua has had perfect attendance for the past three years. He was also nominated at the state level for the California Classified Employee of the Year, but wasn’t chosen. A reception at LAUSD headquarters will be held on May 14 for Amezcua and his friends and family to celebrate his award.

“I am just very honored to accept this award,” Amezcua said. “It just feels so great to be honored, that’s all I really have to say.”
