Murrah Named PCAT Regional Bus Driver of the Year
Jennifer Murrah, GISD bus driver, was recently honored by PCAT (Property Casualty Alliance of Texas) as the 2020-2021 PCAT Bus Driver of the Year for Gainesville ISD. The award is based upon multiple driver attributes: Leadership, Attitude, Perseverance, Student and Parent Relationships, and Technical Skill. Jennifer was nominated by fellow bus driver, David Dietz, who has been a driver for GISD for more than 30 years.
In addition, Jennifer was also named as a PCAT Regional Bus Driver of the Year. This designation represents an even higher level of dedication and accomplishment. The applications from all districts are evaluated looking for drivers who demonstrate a consistent desire to positively influence both students and co-workers through their actions and attitudes, not just words.
As an award, PCAT presented Jennifer with a personalized jacket, a check for $100, in addition to the tokens of appreciation for being named the District Driver of the Year. Jennifer has been a driver for GISD since 2012. Congratulations Jennifer!
