Michelle Pridmore, Operations Supervisor

Michelle Pridmore - As we say goodbye, we would like to thank you for the outstanding work ethic while employed in this department
Michelle started in 1985 as a sub school bus driver, she later became a contracted bus driver.  She qualified during the field trip training trip and took almost every trip possible and had outstanding driving skills.  She then was promoted to Dispatcher, where she learned in the insights of a busy dispatch operation and shined while she performed those duties.  Michelle also because the CSEA Contract which represents classified employees, she wrote the language in it, and has been able to memorize the entire book.  In 2007 Michelle became the Operations Supervisor and earned the respect of the entire department, even though she was tough, most drivers accepted responsibility.  We have never met such an outstanding individual that climbed the ranks this quickly.  We wish you a very happy retirement, it is so well deserved.
