While your children are on their way to and from school, it’s important that they feel safe and cared for in the hands of the ones transporting them to their destinations. One special bus driver has been recognized for always going above and beyond for her students and co-workers.
Althea Ashford has been with Calhoun County Schools System for eight years, and during that time, she’s touched the lives of hundreds of students in the Saks community. Director of Transportation Edward Roe recommended Ashford for Employee of the Month for Calhoun County Schools System for the month of September because of her positive outlook on life, and her love for the students.
Ashford’s co-workers describe as being one of a kind. Ashford says it simply means the world to her to be able to get the students to and from school safely each day. Each month, the board recognizes an employee for their service to the school system. And to show their appreciation, Ashford was awarded with a gift card presented by America’s First Credit Union.
