Wall of Fame
Island Transit smells like team spiritIsland Transit's new facilities coordination team was dubbed that agency's 2013 Spirit Award Team. They also took an esteemed place on the 2013 Wall of Fame at the last Public Transportation Conference. Island Transit lovingly nominated the team's members as Robyn “Uniquely Otherworldly” Goldring, Jud “IT Wizard in the Clouds” Hobbs, Pete “Don’t ask him about getting locked in the Chicken Coop” Schrum and Gary “Master of Laughter and Awe” Manker for coordinating all aspects of Island Transit's “Barn” construction project. "It is beyond incredible that they have accomplished this so eloquently while keeping their sense of humor intact," the nomination letter states.
