West Johnston Area bus driver Kathy Wood was named the 2019 Johnston County Public Schools Bus Driver of the Year.
“There is only one word to use for Kathy Wood, and that is ‘perfection,’” said Sharon Fogleman, transportation supervisor for Johnston County Public Schools. “She is the total package and someone to emulate as a JCPS employee.”
Wood also serves as a teacher assistant at Dixon Road Elementary and is known for working well with students of all ages and building relationships with them.
Wood’s colleagues say she is always willing to go the extra mile to lend a helping hand to others. She is described as a hard worker, who is caring, reliable, safe and good at her job.
