Our people: A clean sweep

Liliana Castillo: Freedom New Mexico CMS custodian Lois Bunting enjoys her job because she can touch children’s lives.

Clovis resident Lois Bunting has worked for Clovis Municipal Schools as a custodian for 22 years. Bunting and her husband Woody Bunting moved to Clovis in 1985 when he received orders to Cannon Air Force Base and Clovis became their home.

Bunting’s husband died four years ago, but she said because of the life they made together here, Clovis will always be her home.

Bunting enjoys being a custodian and believes custodians should be proud of what they do.

“I enjoy the way I’m able to touch kids lives,” Bunting said. “Even when the kids are grown, they come back to visit. Kids are the most important piece of a school system.”
