This years Unsung Hero is Brenda Otto!

Congratulations Brenda!

Her peers had to say the following:
Brenda has helped improve processes, is always willing to work positively across depts. She doesn’t just take “because we’ve always done it that way” for an answer. She seeks to understand why and looks for ways to do it better. Brenda is willing to pitch in wherever she can to get buses delivered and has a positive attitude and genuinely cares about the business, her co-workers, and customers.
