Drusilla Stinson is a Cintas Custodian of the Year finalist.

Facilities Management is excited to announce custodian Drusilla Stinson has been named a top 10 finalist for the 11th Annual Cintas Custodian of the Year national award.

Stinson, who works in Samford Hall, now needs votes to propel her to custodian of the Year.

Visit the Cintas website to submit a vote. You can vote once each day through April 12, 2024.

If named the winner, she will receive $10,000 and a trip for two to Las Vegas.

According to the Cintas website, this contest honors custodians who play a key role in creating a successful environment inside and outside the classroom and whose extensive schedules and strenuous duties often go unnoticed.

Stinson, who has more than 30 years at Auburn, was nominated by the Campus Services leadership team. As a lead custodian, she not only cleans the most iconic building on campus but covers other buildings when needed.

“She is not only a trusted custodian by her employers, but she is loved by everyone on campus. Students, faculty, staff and senior leadership know that when Drusilla is near, their day will get a little brighter,” said Assistant Director of Campus Services Kristy Cannon. “She also trains our new custodians and despite her decades of service and knowledge, she fulfills that role with the utmost humility and grace.”

In addition to her daily duties as a custodian, she has also worked for Campus Dining since 2001.

“She serves the students with compassion and thoughtfulness.  Her kindness is infectious and rivaled only by her dedication to this institution,” Cannon said. “She also works every SEC football gameday, ensuring 30,000 students and 100,000 fans are taken care of, win or lose.”

When Drusilla is not working her two jobs on campus, she volunteers her time in the community. She helps feed the unhoused, donates to United Way and serves as a mentor for the young girls’ group, Red Circle, at her church.

“She not only enhances the lives of the people of Alabama and this university by carrying out her job duties in meticulous detail, but she also exemplifies selfless service,” Cannon said.
