This summer, Campion Academy has employed nine students to work for Mr. O’Halloran in maintaining the campus. So far, they have given Jessica Rios’ house a new roof, painted the Ad Building, and redone Daniel Force’s apartment. Amie said, “My favorite thing to do while working maintenance has been painting the Ad Building and the Tower.”
In addition to the nine students that work maintenance, Kyle Rushold, a Campion graduate, works as a supervisor. Kyle has worked maintenance at Campion for five years with this being his third year working as Mr. O’Halloran’s summer associate.
The students mow the lawns of Campion Church, Campion Academy, and HMS Elementary, which is a total of 37 acres. Julia said, “My favorite job is to mow, and I do a lot of it!”
Ireland added, “Mr. O’Halloran is a good boss, he keeps us busy.”
Mr. O’Halloran commented, “It’s important to take care of the campus and to learn the importance of a good looking campus. If the campus looks good it makes everyone else’s job easier.” When asked why it is important that students work maintenance over the summer, Mr. O’Halloran responded, “So they can earn money and understand the importance of hard work.”
We want to thank Mr. O’Halloran and all the people working maintenance for their hard work and dedication!
