Ray Wilde is the February employee of the month.
Ray has help us in the AV department countless time in the past few months. He helped out at the D.O. with a high profile conference room that needed cement core drilled for his power. He made sure we had room and extra pipe and ran data and video cables for us.
Ray also had a big project at the bus barn that required a lift. He noticed that we (AV department) did not have a work order for this project. Ray called me and told me he had a lift out there already for his power and suggested that we come in and use the lift to run our data lines. That saved the district money and time and allowed the bus barn project to get done faster.
There are many many times Ray has went the extra mile to help us out.
I also want to give a shout out to the Electrician Department. Not only Ray but there are many people in that department that goes the extra mile to help out. What a great group of guys.

Ron has been picking up surplus copy machines and rebuilding the low meter copiers this summer.
