CYPRESS — Kevin Kurtz, assistant shop foreman at the Telge Transportation Center, recently placed seventh nationally in the technician competition at the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s 44th annual conference, held Oct. 27-30 in Kansas City, Mo.

Kurtz, who has served CFISD for three years and quickly rose from mechanic technician to assistant shop foreman, earned his bid to the national competition after winning the same event at the Texas Association for Pupil Transportation Conference and Trade Show in June. Among the events Kurtz competed in were diagnosing a loading door as well as a liftramp on a special needs bus, and running diagnostics on computer components to correctly identify and diagnose a problem.

Kurtz holds a Master Certification through the Texas Association for School Bus Technicians.

“We are proud of Mr. Kurtz’s accomplishments and excited that he represented Texas and Cy-Fair ISD on a national level,” said Dr. Kayne Smith, director of transportation.
