  By: Turner of Dallas H.R. No. 1391
         WHEREAS, Curtis Jenkins, a bus driver for Lake Highlands
  Elementary School, was promoted to a new position as a relationship
  specialist for the Richardson Independent School District in 2020;
         WHEREAS, Mr. Jenkins went above and beyond his
  responsibilities as the driver of Bus No. 1693, where he created a
  self-contained community in which students held jobs, earned "bus
  bucks," and learned lessons about respect, courtesy, and other
  values during their daily rides; his ability to foster a sense of
  community and inspire engagement among the students of Lake
  Highlands Elementary captured the attention of Richardson ISD
  officials, and in his new role with its Human Resources department,
  he oversees the district's focus on supporting the career
  development of hourly and paraprofessional staff members; and
         WHEREAS, Committed to encouraging kindness and compassion in
  young Texans, Mr. Jenkins has received recognition for his own acts
  of generosity; he made headlines around the country after
  purchasing Christmas gifts for students, and on several occasions,
  he has also bought Thanksgiving turkeys for families in need; and
         WHEREAS, Curtis Jenkins has demonstrated commendable
  dedication to helping students develop as young men and women of
  good character, and Richardson ISD is fortunate to continue to
  benefit from his service; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
  Legislature hereby congratulate Curtis Jenkins on his promotion to
  the position of relationship specialist for Richardson ISD and
  extend to him sincere best wishes for continued success; and, be it
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for Mr. Jenkins as an expression of high regard by the
  Texas House of Representatives.
