Heather Garrett Named March RepMO Hero


Congratulations to our MARCH REPMO HERO OF THE MONTH, Heather Garrett! Heather goes above and beyond in serving students and teammates as Transportation Supervisor. We are so thankful she chooses to serve in Republic!
A compilation of nominations received in regards to Mrs. Garrett from district employees is below. She will be honored at the April Board of Education meeting, and will also receive $500 to be spent on the resources of her choice. 
Heather Garrett has been serving our district for over 17 years! For many of those years she was a bus driver, and then became the Transportation Supervisor a couple of years ago. As a driver, she was very committed to her students and their families. She was known for building strong relationships with her "route family." In addition, she has an excellent driving record! These attributes, along with others, indicate how blessed the district is to have her in her current role of Transportation Supervisor. Heather always has excellent attendance, great communication and interactions with not only Transportation Department teammates, but with parents, administrators, etc. Her knowledge of the area and work to keep us prepared for the upcoming growth are amazing! She is at the top of her game when it comes to making sure all kids needing transportation are routed, coordinating routes with our drivers and managing bus video. Heather is very talented and gets the job done no matter what it takes! A great leader, great employee and great co-worker is why Heather Garrett is our March 2021 RepMO Hero Nominee!
In addition to celebrating Mrs. Garrett, we'd like to honor all of our RepMO Hero March Nominees! Thanks to every single one of these individuals for going above and beyond to serve students and teammates!
