Staff Shout-Out

David Mead

David Mead from IT deserves recognition for all the work he provides to staff out in the field. He works tirelessly to keep all of the computers at the STEPS Program in Longview working. One Friday afternoon, he was setting up 15 students’ computers and realized he had the wrong cords to connect them, so he problem solved. Rather than saying, “I’ll come back Monday,” he called his wife in Vancouver, who loaded up their two children and the cords in her car and drove them up to Longview! He was still working at 4:30 when the last STEPS employee left the building. Our computers were student-ready when we returned to work Monday morning.

David is a patient person always willing to listen to all of our computer issues and problem-solve in a way that makes everyone happy. He is knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.
