It’s not everyday that a custodian gets his own special day of recognition, but the students and staff at West Elementary in Emmetsburg decided that their building custodian, Jim Carpenter, deserved a special day of recognition. Students compiled tributes to Carpenter and presented them in a book, along with a special “SuperJim” t-shirt, to Carpenter in a surprise assembly on May 8.
