Today is NATIONAL CUSTODIAN DAY! We have an amazing, hard-working team here at G-ACS! --------- I am excited to say that for the first time in a long time, G-ACS has custodial services back under the roof of the Home of the Rams! An essential point on the custodial - maintenance - grounds keeping triangle, that lies underneath the umbrella of Facilities. The point that most affects every Ram Fam member every day, whether we realize it or not. The first to arrive in the morning, the last to leave at night. The heavy lifting, the dirty jobs, the taking care of a problem before most of us even know it exists. When we call, they drop whatever they're doing and attend to our needs. Much of their work is seldom witnessed and too often the results taken for granted. So I ask on this National Custodian's Day that you might pause for a few seconds and thank these Ram family members. Sincerely, Frank Facilities Director
