Today we say goodbye to Eric Davenport, Roofer/Carpenter.  Eric has been with VCUSD maintenance for 32 years providing an exemplary and selfless level of service to our students, staff and community.  You can be assured that on those rainy and windy days Eric was on a roof somewhere in this district bravely working his skill and his magic. Eric created all sorts of devices and goops to get us through the worst weather, and can be credited with keeping Botari gym operational when we weren’t so sure.

It’s ironic that Eric retires just when we get a bond to repair and replace all roofs in this district - perhaps he felt his job was done!  We wish Eric all the best in his retirement and send him off with our sincerest gratitude.
