“I’m a senior at Tallmadge High School. I wanted to shadow a METRO SCAT Operator because my career plan is to be a handicap bus driver. I love driving around people. My experience was really nice. We went all around Summit County and had great conversations with passengers.”
“John and I have been together five years today, and married since August 2018. We met through coworkers. We instantly became friends. It was effortless. People always said ‘you guys are always smiling when you’re together!’
“He started working at METRO in March 2012 and I started in July 2012. I was an operator for 6 1/2 years before I got my new position in Customer Service. John will hit seven years this year as a bus operator. It’s been great because we understand our different work schedules and know each other’s tasks. We’ve participated in a summer softball league with coworkers and we attend the Working Women’s Committee events.
“We are both homebodies, except when we want to travel. We love traveling, going out to dinner, and spending Friday nights playing games with our kids.”
