The Bravo! Award for the week of February 12th went to Lorenzo Albo, custodian at Durango High School. He was nominated by Activities and Athletics Administrative Assistant Ann Duft.
In her nomination she wrote, "I'd like to nominate Lorenzo Albo on Carol Queen's maintenance team here at DHS. I know the maintenance crew across the district is doing great things in removing all the ice and snow this winter; he's the one I see at 6:35 in the dark morning throwing salt and cracking the ice by hand until the sidewalk is clear and dry. He's hard-working, dedicated, takes pride in his work, and always greets everyone with a smile. He's a true asset to the DHS staff!"
Nice job, Lorenzo!

This is a great help for the busses, and assists them in getting and out of the school parking lots. Carl always has a smile and a wave to brighten our day."
Nice job, Carl!
