Steve Eggers has been taking care of the Harris-Lake Park schools and other properties for 40 years. His last day here at H-LP will be June 30th.

Mr. Eggers is the head custodian of the buildings and grounds and the transportation supervisor. In his 40 years at H-LP, his duties were maintenance, repair, upkeep the grounds and sports fields, boilers, custodial, bus driver, and bus and other vehicle maintenance. Steve’s one goal before his last day is to help the existing employees and new personnel transition into their roles so the cleanliness and safety of the buildings and vehicles can be maintained.

His plan after his retirement is to relax and continue working on projects like his cars and antiques. His favorite memory of H-LP is being a part of the improvement and upgrades of the district throughout the years.

He will miss visiting with the students and staff. He said, “I have worked with many wonderful people throughout my career.” His biggest accomplishments while here were to serve as the longest non-certified employee at H-LP; the state inspectors rated the district #7 in the state for safe buses; and helping with the building projects for what is now the existing middle school/high school.

He and his wife, Lori, have raised one daughter and have lived in Lake Park all their lives.  

Thank you, Mr. Eggers, for everything you have done for this school district! We hope you have a great retirement!
