Alvin ISD bus driver, Ana Avitia, has never missed a day of work in over 20 years.
The Alvin ISD Board of Trustees recognized Ms. Avitia’s dedication with a commendation for her service.
“Bus drivers are often the first and last district employees to see our students every day. After two decades of outstanding service, Alvin ISD Board of Trustees is proud to recognize Ana Avitia for having perfect attendance driving her bus since her first day behind the wheel,” shared Board President Earl Humbird.
“I have run route 007 since I began. I have gotten to know the students and their families,” Avitia shared. “I have had brothers and sisters and now have seen their children on my bus.”
Attendance has always been important to Avitia. “When I was a kid, I had perfect attendance in school. I wanted to get Astroworld coupons, which they gave you if you never missed a day,” Avitia shared.
“Ana is an amazing employee. She is always willing to help whenever and wherever she can. She is trustworthy and can always be counted on to be there for our students,” said Director of Transportation, Greg Bingham.
