“We launched the Custodians Are Key program in 2019 to celebrate the unsung heroes who make our schools better by going above and beyond their daily job duties, showing students and staff how much they care,” said Rusty Zay, Senior Vice President, Chief Commercial Officer, Tennant Company. “We had no idea that a global pandemic would make the jobs they do even more critical to the health and safety of the teachers and students they serve. It is our honor to celebrate these superheroes; their work continues to be critically important, and we are grateful for their dedication.”

Since the program’s inception, Tennant has received more than 5,000 nominations across the United States and Canada and has selected three grand prize winners, including Gladys Hernandez at Blue Valley CAPS in Overland, Kansas; Alonzo Henley of Brownsville Middle School in Miami, Florida; and Kris Kantor of Hayes Elementary in Lakewood, Ohio.

The Custodians Are Key Program

From September 13-November 15, 2022, Tennant invites all school administrators, teachers, and parents to nominate their custodians at tennantco.com/custodian. Starting in November, a committee of judges from Tennant will select 12 finalists based on the quality of the nomination and the impact the custodian makes on his or her school. The first three finalists will be announced in December and the remaining finalists throughout the 2022-2023 school year. All finalists will be chosen from the entire field of nominees and will receive a $500 Visa gift card. In May 2023, Tennant will select a grand prize winner from the pool of 12 finalists, and the winner will receive $5,000 while their school will receive $10,000.
