Local students honor school’s lead janitor

Sunday, June 14, 2015 — Life is full of people who make a positive difference in a quiet way and may never be recognized for the influence they have on others.
    After four months of planning the surprise, Lassen High School’s students body changed that for one person on campus.
    More than 100 students gathered in the school library and when lead custodian Dan Brussatoi walked in they gave him a round of applause and presented him with gifts.
    He received a $50 gift card, a new tackle box and a card in the shape of a fishing vest.  
    Students in the woodshop class made a plaque with a fish and fishing pole and Brussatoi was also given a fish bowl filled with paper fish that were given to every staff member to sign and thank him for what
he does.
