Lynn Sackman, Lind-Ritzville Schools’ director of transportation, has been selected to represent Washington as a delegate to the 2020 National Congress on School Transportation, LRS Superintendent Don Vanderholm announced this week.
Vanderholm shared with The Journal a letter he received from Patti Enbody, the Washington state director of student transportation, informing him of Sackmann’s selection.
“NCST is convened every five years to adopt updates to the National School Transportation Specifications and Procedures (NSTSP). The NSTSP, which is comprised of the delegates’ recommendations, is available for states to use when establishing their operation standards and school bus specifications,” Enbody wrote in the letter. “Lynn is a respected member of Washington’s pupil transportation community. His expertise in school bus transportation would serve Washington’s delegation at NCST well.”
Earlier this year, Sackmann was recognized at an LRS school board meeting after the districts received a letter of commendation from the state for two straight years of “outstanding results” in school bus safety inspections.
