Here is our newest honoree:

Everyday Hero
Mark Hoy, Bus Driver, Transportation

Mark, I want to publicly recognize and thank you for the amazing job you do every day driving one of our DLC buses! If an adult isn’t at your bus to bring in your student, you walk him into the cafeteria to ensure he gets his breakfast and knows where he is going. When you do, you always greet everyone with a huge smile and a cheery “Good Morning!” — brightening everyone’s day who has the chance to see you. You are also so kind and caring with your student, and it is clear you love what you do. Thank you so much, and keep up the great work!
