Member Spotlight – Connie Castruita

Who is SOSCA Member Connie Castruita?
Job Title: School Bus Driver

Department/Division:  Transportation Services
How long have you been with KCSOS?  11 years
What is your favorite job duty?  My favorite duty would have to be transporting my students to where they need to be. Seeing my students talking, laughing and having a good time on the bus makes me feel like I’m doing my job and that they feel safe.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  Spending time with my daughters and granddaughters and watching them play sports. Oh, yes! And catching up on my “novelas” before I go to bed.
What else would you like to share with us?  I’d like to thank KCSOS transportation for their support since I started working with the company. I’d also like to thank my co-workers for helping me raise money to send my youngest daughter to the women’s nationals for wrestling. And it paid off–she received a wrestling scholarship to Missouri Baptist University!

We’ve created “SOSCA Spotlight” in the hopes of expanding your knowledge of who SOSCA is while celebrating the diversity of our membership.
