March 18, 2015 is the 78th anniversary of the 1937 TX School Explosion that killed more than 300 people, mostly students. Every year, in remembering the tragedy, I salute a Hero whose extraordinary sense of responsibility inspires excellence in school safety.
The 2015 Hero is Gregg Smith, Director of Facility Services, and his Salt Lake City Schools Facility Team.
Gregg and his staff have been widely recognized and congratulated for many successful exemplary programs and best practices in indoor air quality, integrated pest management, energy efficiency and recycling.
However, this recognition applauds the Facility Services newsletter, Fresh Paint, for best practice in communication that builds and continuously strengthens a culture of responsibility and continuous improvement. Fresh Paint is an extension of Gregg Smith’s management philosophy “communicate, coordinate, and follow up.”
One of the lessons of the 1937 TX School Explosion is that those responsible for schools need to be highly qualified for the job of managing complex systems of both buildings and people.
EachHealthy Schools Hero 2004-2015 is extraordinary for a combination of personal qualities and qualifications beyond credentials, a commitment to a safe quality environment, and an exceptional sense of responsibility for excellence.
