Danner Hall’s cafeteria can get a little messy, especially with custodian shortages in recent months.

Members of the Associated Students of Delta College have stepped up to the plate to help clean.

“Well I’m one of the students here at the student activity office that said I’m willing.

For them to have concerns like the microwave … I’m willing to go out to clean them microwave and also cleaning those tables off like I’ve been doing,” said Carmen Slaughter, ASDC senator at large.

Slaughter and Diana Murry, senator of activities, have offered to help out.

Custodian Cathy Montantes said students stepping up is a “wonderful thing.”

“If you can get your students together, to help to participant with the custodian is an awesome thing,” she said.

Slaughter said she’s heard students complain about the microwave not being clean.

She’s leading by example.

“Maybe by somebody stepping up, taking lead in cleaning maybe others will pitch in and help clean them up,” said Slaughter.
