Craftsman Recognized for 33 Years of Dedicated Service

Craftsman Mario Rodriguez was named the 2021 recipient of the Joann Robinson Staff Distinguished Service Award on Oct. 8 in recognition of his dedicated service to The Webb Schools.

Rodriguez joined Webb in 1988 – just weeks before the schools were rocked by a windstorm, fire and evacuation. His performance during those crises led to his first commendation.

“Your performance both during the windstorm, fire and evacuation was excellent,” said Janet Peddy, Webb’s director of finance, planning and operations. “Your calmness and diligence set a standard for students and faculty alike. And so it has been for the past 33 years. In a variety of roles, Mario has diligently and calmly been taking care of the Webb community.”

Over the 33 years, Rodriguez has shifted jobs from groundskeeper to mechanic, welder and now craftsman.

“Mario is multi-skilled and lends his talents wherever needed,” Peddy said. “You can always count on him to be there, day or night, whatever the crisis.”
