The City of Murfreesboro is pleased to announce Rover Driver Clint Thomas of Murfreesboro’s Transportation Department as the STARS award recipient for March 2013. Clint was recognized for his outstanding work at the April 18, 2013 meeting of the Murfreesboro City Council for “Succeeding Through Attitudes Reflecting Service Excellence.” It is an honor to recognize the City’s greatest assets – its employees.
On a cold Friday evening recently, Clint was able to assist a passenger and his four children when they arrived late at the Rover transfer hub. Clint had already left and was halfway through his run when he received word that the family was stranded. They were trying to call for other transportation, but in the meantime, Clint finished dropping off his passengers and volunteered to return to the hub to see if they were still there. Once he got there and learned the family wasn’t able to find other transportation, Clint took the family home. While not required to do this, Rover tries its best to not leave its riders stranded, and his actions were above and beyond the call of duty. Actually, many of our Rover drivers have been kind enough to offer such services over the years.
When told about winning the STARS award for his efforts, Clint’s response was “it’s what I do and I would do it again”. It was also recently noted by a member of the public that Clint is always in a good mood and that he appreciates him coming to work with a good attitude.
Murfreesboro is fortunate to have employees so caring and honorable. Congratulations to Clint Thomas and the City of Murfreesboro Transportation Department on the STARS award!
