Our amazing custodian, Mr. Alfaro, started working at Walnut in April of 1989. He has been at Walnut longer than any other employee! Staff and students surprised him on April 1st at Wildcat Pride Assembly for his 30th anniversary with the school. He was presented with a cake, gift, celebration banners, and a video featuring staff, students, and alumni. The theme was, "Be Like Mr. Alfaro!"—dedicated, caring, responsible, and always looking for ways to help others.
