Girling Honored with McCullough Award

This summer Barry Girling, Director of Facilities for York Suburban School District, received the Wayne McCullough Award from the Central Region School Facilities Managers. The honor is given annually by the Central Region School Facility Managers (CRSFM) to a member(s) of the local chapter at the annual staff training day. The award was established in honor of Mr. McCullough’s dedication, commitment and service to the CRSFM in his 28 years with Southern York County School District.

Inspired by a notice about the award in a newsletter, Wayne Ingerto, Coordinator of Custodians and Grounds, nominated Girling because of his 38 years of dedication and service to the district. “He spends countless hours making sure everything in the facility is the best it can be for all the students and staff. He is constantly exploring new technology and ideas that can improve the quality of education here at York Suburban”, says Ingerto.   

A record of community service is a criterion of award recipients. Ingerto noted that “Mr. Girling always communicates with our high school principal offering to help struggling students to find ways to become better adults. He always makes himself available to mentor and teach our young adults.”  In a short time, Girling has made a lasting impression on Ingerto and many others at York Suburban.
