Some very exciting news!
Danny Loucks, who has been a truck driver for #GWTatro for years, received a very prestigious #award from the #Vermont Truck and Bus Association: the Master Truck Driver Certification!
Amy Tatro, the truck supervisor, entered him into the running for the award based on his #professional conduct, #superb driving ability and the amount of care he puts into his truck. The governor of Vermont was there to give the award to Danny and his wonderful family! Congrats Danny and thanks for all you do!
This is the speech that Amy wrote on Danny, and that Governor Phil Scott read: "G.W. Tatro is so proud of Danny for his accomplishments and thrilled that he is being recognized for his great work driving. Danny lives for trucks, which is manifested in a variety of important ways: his truck is always organized, and clean. He is known for being a careful driver, always cognizant of everything around him. Perhaps most importantly, he always stays calm, even in the most high-pressure situations. So it’s not a surprise that he has one of the best driving records in the company. Danny is caring and not just with his [wife] and [daughter] but with his co-workers as well, whether it is sitting with an injured employee for two hours in the ER or just making sure to ask about how someone’s weekend went. He never fails to offer a smile, a joke, or a good morning nod. Through the years Danny has been one of our most consistent employees, always showing up for work and always with a smile on his face. He is one of our hardest workers, working late without complaint.
Danny has been with G.W. Tatro for 18 years now. We are truly lucky to have someone as dedicated and hardworking as him. Congratulations! You truly earned this moment." #tuesday#hardwork#photography#construction#constructionlife#vermontlife#hustle#heavymachinery#heavyequipment#summer#bestoftheday#engineering#mountain#business
Working on getting the outside of my office ready! I managed to fill a two ton dump truck full of dirt, weeds and trash. Still have a ways to go but I'm looking forward to sharing the finished product. And, yes, I did operate that Bobcat. ❤️
There are few places that make me happier than a good ditch. I try to hop in every once in a while to stay grounded and close to the operations around me. It's easy to forget what it takes to put pipe in the ground when you're only looking at plans or at things from up top. I'm quickly humbled standing inside of the box culvert while this machine swings about from above. No matter where you end up don't forget where you started!
