 Getting to Know SDCOE: Maintenance Supervisor Keeps Things Running Smoothly

Gus Freeman is San Diego County Office of Education's (SDCOE) Classified Employee of the Month for July. He has worked in the Maintenance and Operations department at SDCOE for more than 13 years and was recently promoted to supervisor.

Assistant Superintendent Don Buchheit nominated Freeman for the award because of his flexibility and professionalism recently when helping employees change offices.

"Gus deserves to be employee of the month each month!" Buchheit said. "His work ethic, commitment to each employee's need, and his genuine, positive personality shows in his work."

When he's not ensuring things go smoothly at SDCOE's main campus, Freeman serves as chaplain for American Legion District 22. He also enjoys time with family. He is getting married in September and is expecting his third grandchild soon.
