Jessica S., Trousdale School
Trousdale School uses cloth towels in the bathrooms and kitchens rather than paper towels for several reasons. The dirty hand towels give the students ongoing inventory to wash in Life Skills Lab. The school saves money on the housekeeping budget by not having to purchase paper towels. The earth is a little more green by avoiding some paper products. Finally, it creates a job on-campus for students transitioning to the community.
Jessica S. began with Facility Services in 2018. She is responsible for collecting dirty towels from bathrooms then washing and drying. She folds and replenishes the bathrooms and kitchens inventory.
