“Russ had a positive influence on our students and staff and that will never be forgotten,” Maintenance Supervisor John Huyck said.

Porteous recently received the Outstanding People for Education award in 2020.

“He makes students feel comfortable while riding the bus and always has a smile on his face and a kind word to share,” the parent of six children who nominated him said.
“Russ does an outstanding job reassuring nervous parents and helping students who were treated unfairly on the bus.”
