To the Membership,

We would like to recognize Judy & Jim’s years of service and numerous

Contributions to the TASBT.

Jim joined the TASBT in 1996 with 21 years of service.

Judy has been the executive secretary since 2007 with 9 years of service.

We would like to do this during the General Session in Frisco, TX.

 Their never ending compassion and

Drive to make our industry in the Great State of Texas the best of best

Is greatly appreciated. They spent many hours on the road and in their home office,

making books, processing endless amounts of paperwork, answering phone calls and emails

to do one thing! Make our school buses the safest they could be by

constantly promoting the never ending education of School Bus Technicians

State wide.

We would also like to give a huge thanks to our vendors for their support.

Without them none of this would be possible.

We would also like to thank the hosts and the use of the facilities provided.

Please be sure to Register for the San Antonio event.

Frisco was a success!!
