She has patiently come to my aid to help guide visitors to the administration building. In addition, she has gone above and beyond when I needed paperwork signed, she went out of her way to ensure that I received the necessary signatures. Furthermore, she was so helpful when I needed my address updated. She gently coaxed the computer systems to align all of my addresses. I appreciate all of her assistance.

"I would like to nominate Sam Hicks for the Bravo Award in Transportation. Sam routinely dogs problems until they are solved to the best of her ability and beyond. This year, more than most years, the Transportation Dept is in a bind for drivers, as we all know. It causes a lot of stress for many of us, but Sam is my Go To person. I feel that she is an unsung hero in many situations that she has helped me through in getting teams and groups and activities to and fro across the state. And not only that, I truly appreciate her wit and humour as a release valve! Thanks, my friend!"
Sam was nominated by Ann Duft Congratulations Sam and thanks for all you do!
