What Ward principal Dawn Ripple says: “Ward is blessed to have Mr. Sammy Villarreal as its lead school custodian. For the past 3 years, Sammy has gone above and beyond to keep our school in top shape. He keeps our school looking great by waxing, sweeping, vacuuming and shining everything in sight! Teachers and students recognize that Sammy is always willing to lend a helping hand. From refilling soap and paper towel dispensers to setting up chairs for a faculty meeting, Sammy does it all with a joyful heart. There’s no task that is too big or too small. When Sammy isn’t cleaning up spills in the cafeteria, he’s greeting students at breakfast and opening milk cartons at lunch. We’re so thankful he’s a Ward Wildcat!”
