Congratulations to Lydiksen's Fernando Bongiorno, PUSD's 2022 Classified Employee of the Year!

Please join us in congratulating Lydiksen Elementary School’s Fernando Bongiorno, PUSD’s 2022 Classified Employee of the Year!

Fernando has served our Lancers for seven years as their custodian, helping to ensure the campus is a clean and safe environment for all students to learn.

He is lauded by his Lydiksen community as professional, personable and positive - all characteristics that make Mr. Bongiorno such a valuable member of the Lydiksen and PUSD team. Fernando’s colleagues know they can count on him to help with any issues that arise, always with a smile on his face. He knows students by name, often kicking a soccer ball around with them and allowing them to assist with tasks at lunch.

Fernando’s name will be submitted for consideration for the 2022 County Classified School Employee of the Year Award.

Here are a few things Team PUSD had to say about Fernando:

“Fernando Bongiorno sets the bar high for day custodian performance. He is completely dedicated to the Lydiksen community in doing his part to make it a wonderful facility for all of the staff, students and families.”

“He leads by example. Fernando is not boastful but instead shows his leadership by “doing”. He completes all that is asked and has a friendly attitude. Even when life gets in the way, he doesn’t show it. He is committed to our staff, our community, and to his job.”

Congratulations, Fernando!
