The Public Works Institute of Texas (PWITX) continues its role of developing Leaders
The City of Webster was the municipal host for Class V’s Session 1 from April 19-21, 2023. There were 50 participants representing the following cities: Abilene, Addison, Baytown, Bay City, Belton, Carrollton, Cleburne, El Campo, Frisco, Grand Prairie, Helotes, Hereford, Harlingen, Killeen, Lewisville, McAllen, McKinney, Oak Ridge, Pflugerville, Rowlett and Webster.; as well as one consultant from Lockwood, Andrews, and Newman (LAN).
As always, Ms. Ines Roach, the PWITX Executive Administrator, had handled the lodging, food, and all education support activities excellent. The three days of training generated a great deal of class interaction with the 17 classes and 13 instructors scheduled. These classes were arranged by Dan Krueger, the new Director of Curriculum, replacing the long time MVP John German—who still attended and made his usual excellent contributions.
The highlight on the last day was the graduation of Jose Lemus from the City of El Campo; he had started the sessions earlier and needed this set of classes to graduate-- completing the 90+ hours of course instruction. Congratulations.
