Dis­patch Trans­porta­tion “Pa­tri­cia has one of the hard­est jobs in the district. By 5 a.m., she is an­swer­ing phones and mak­ing phone calls to make sure all the bus routes are cov­ered as well as find­ing subs for those who are ill. She also an­swers phone calls from par­ents. If that were not hec­tic enough, she helps with ra­dios that con­nect the buses, the of­fice and the me­chan­ics. Trish main­tains a calm and pro­fes­sional man­ner as she an­swers the ra­dio to help those in need. It’s enough to drive most peo­ple mad, but in­stead she’s cheer­ful and pos­i­tive even when she may have to re­peat her­self sev­eral times. Along with all th­ese re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, there are many times she fills in for a sick driver be­cause there is no one else that can drive. Tr­isha is al­ways pos­i­tive and cheer­ful.” Todd Cook Main­te­nance District Wide “Todd keeps all of our cus­to­dial equip­ment run­ning and in good re­pair. He never com­plains and is self-mo­ti­vated. Nebo never has to worry about him stay­ing busy. Todd is also very metic­u­lous about the equip­ment and is a won­der­ful em­ployee.” Pa­tri­cia San­born Todd Cook
