Over the course of the last school year, he assisted in the transportation parts department while also completing his regular assigned duties. Vasina added that Wagoner has the ability to repair anything thrown his way and is one of the most well-rounded technicians he has worked with in the school bus industry. Not only does Wagoner go above and beyond at work, he is also a leader in the community. He is a retired military veteran, having served 20 years in the U.S. Army, and has carried that integrity into civilian life. He is also committed to teaching the youth values and works as a volunteer umpire with Little League International and has frequently umpired the Little League World Series. “Dick is the glue that holds our fleet department together,” said

of technicians. He said he loves watching one of the district’s vehi- cles driving down the road as it gives him a sense of pride knowing he had something to do with that vehicle being safe and reliable. 23
