Fun Facts about David: 
I feel very fortunate to be in a position that oversees so many areas that have a positive impact in our students' lives: transporting our kids safely to and from school, providing our students with nutritious meals, and providing our kids with a safe and secure learning environment. This cannot be done without all the great support from the employees within the business services departments.

I love spending time with my friends and family and rooting for my Cyclones!
