Victoria Davis has been chosen the Employee of the Second Quarter by the SETD Management Team. Victoria also received the Executive Director Award of the Year by Executive Director Jeff Hazen.

Victoria began her employment at SETD as a driver on May 10, 2021. Victoria is known for her wonderful customer service, her strong work ethic and her integrity. Victoria cares a great deal about the quality of service she provides and goes the extra mile to make sure that her passengers are always met with a smile and kind word. Victoria is a pleasure to work with and has received many accolades from riders and coworkers. She brings fun to work and shares it with her coworkers. There is never a dull moment and of course much laughter when Victoria is in the room! A surprise gathering was held where Executive Director Jeff Hazen presented Victoria with an engraved crystal plaque commemorating her being chosen for the Executive Director Award of the Year along with flowers and gift certificates for her also being selected Employee of the Quarter.
