School district's transportation mechanics pass with flying colors
Federal Way School District transportation department mechanics James Knight, Todd Fitch, Ian Rutherford, Chris Pyle, Ken Dupuis, Dominick Weigel and Tom Nutt received recognition from the school board at a meeting Sept. 11 for outstanding maintenance on school buses.
The department earned recognition from the Washington State Patrol and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Terry Bergeson for passing an annual school bus inspection with 100 percent. The inspection lasted three days and assessed 35 categories including an other category that could include almost anything, such as ripped or torn seats. All 142 buses and 53 support vehicles passed the safety portion of the inspection. It marked the second year the department was recognized for outstanding transportation safety and the first year it received 100 percent on an inspection.
Our mechanics are great, said transportation director Cindy Wendland. Im really proud of these people.
