Leverette 1 Lacey Leverette Ms. Helana Brigman English 1001, Section 8 9 July 2010 Highland’s Mr. Clean Switching light bulbs, mopping floors, and putting on doors do not serve as an obstacle to Highland’s, Mr. Clean. Ronald Dorton Jr., or Mr. Clean, is a part of LSU Residential Life Maintenance Staff. A member of the maintenance staff, he has to partake in many different tasks per day. There are many obstacles in completing the responsibilities that are bestowed upon this twenty-eight year old, but the challenges are what make his job interesting. Ronald’s job entails more than what is hidden behind the dust. Highland’s Mr. Clean is much more than a custodian; he is an inspiration and joy all around campus and in people’s lives. Highland’s Mr. Clean was packaged and shipped from another location. He was born and raised in Richmond, California. Originally, Ronald was a custodian and a maintenance worker at the West Contra Costa Unified school district in Richmond, California: the home of Richmond High from the movie Coach Carter. He is a grad student at Southern University and moved to Baton Rouge in 2005: the interim to complete his degree in Architecture. He started working at LSU in August of 2009. He was a Resident Assistant in the Horseshoe area of campus, so he decided to apply for a job on the LSU website - Ronald is now a full-time employee working forty hours a week. The Res Life maintenance and custodial teams are physically at LSU between the hours of 8:00 A.M . to 4:30 P.M. on Monday thru Friday, limited service on weekends, and twenty-four hours a day on call. This humble job is paying for Ronald’s education at LSU and Southern University.

Leverette 2 At first sight, Ronald Dorton Jr. appears to be like any other janitor. Dressed in a blue jumpsuit, he sweeps up and down the basement floor while jamming to the music playing on his silver iPod. While acknowledging the residents that are entering the dorm, Ronald turns to give a welcoming smile.
