Republic Rockstars positively impact the community they serve and go out of their way to brighten someone’s day. This week, we’d like to recognize Heavy Equipment Mechanic Wayde L. for giving back to his community in a big way.
Wayde has been with the company for 22 years. During this time, he has accumulated thousands of DTS (Dedicated to Safety) reward points. DTS points are awarded to employees for outstanding safety, attendance and customer service. Employees can redeem their DTS points for big-ticket items, such as computers, grills, HD TVs, etc.
Wayde recently redeemed nearly 4,000 points for 10 computers that he plans to donate to his old high school in Littlefork, MN. “I’ve been blessed in my life and saw this as an opportunity to invest in our future through education,” Wayde said.
Thank you, Wayde, for your generosity and making a difference in students’ lives. As our Republic Rockstar of the week, we had a few questions to get to know Wayde a little better – check out his responses below.
