Max Christensen of the Iowa Department of Education formally became president of the National Association of State Directors of Pupil Transportation Services and Leon Langley of the Maryland State Department of Education was selected as president-elect at the conclusion of last week's annual meeting in Memphis, Tenn.
"I think we had one of the best conferences we've had in recent memory. The discussion generated a good deal of interest among a lot of people," said Christensen, especially noting presentations by Norman Kerechuk of GK Design, Inc., on a concept for a futuristic school bus and by Shmuel Bollen, a user interface designer from ACI Worldwide, on recommendations for improving the safety messages and markings on the rear of school buses. "We were looking forward at so many things. I certainly look forward to our board moving forward. We are going to get things done."
Langley for the past two years served as the East region director of NASDPTS. Replacing him as East region director is Lt. Garfield Green of the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. Meanwhile, Christensen served on the board as president-elect under Mike Simmons of the Arkansas Department of Education, who is now NASDPTS' immediate past-president.
Murrell Martin of the Utah State Department of Education rejoins the board as West region director. Ben Shew of the West Virginia Department of Education remains the South region director and Kenneth Steiner of the North Dakota Department of Education continues to serve as the Midwest region director. Diana Hollander of the Nevada Department of Education continues to serve as the secretary/treasurer for two more years.
