Keep your workers cool with rest, water and shade

Tennant Corporation named Gladys Hernandez the grand prize winner of its third annual Guardians Are Key competition, which recognizes the work done by goalies in K-12 schools across North America.

Hernandez, a guard at Blue Valley CAPS in Overland, Kansas, was one of 12 finalists chosen from nearly 1,000 nominations across the United States and Canada last fall. She will receive a prize of 15,000 US dollars, including 5,000 dollars for her and 10,000 dollars for her school.

Hernandez was nominated by Blue Valley CAPS Medicine Foundations Instructor Laura Benscheidt, who highlighted Hernandez’s encouraging words for teachers and students and her willingness to volunteer her time to help students as some of the many reasons for which she deserved the award.

“Gladys cares, she wants to provide a building where staff and students can learn. She greets students and staff at the door with a smile and a word of encouragement every day. She is often seen checking in with teachers to meet their daily needs, Benscheidt said. “Gladys takes pride in knowing that the foundation of her work is making a difference in the ability of students to learn and teachers to teach.”

The fourth annual Guardians Are Key contest will begin in September. To visit tennantco.com/custodian to learn more.
