“When I began working for Krum ISD Dale was the mechanic. He tried to stay on top of all bus issues in fact having to drive replacement buses to myself or other drivers back then.

When my mother passed away earlier this year…he called while I was with her before, during and after her illness to check if I needed anything. I will never forget [him] for that. He is a good leader to our team by helping out with whatever we may need. He [is one of] the best of the best leaders and supervisors in my lifetime of working to work with because they make our team members each feel like family instead of just employees.”
