23 May 2017 “Driver Hailed as a Hero”
At Towne Park, every day we get to do something extraordinary. Every day we have the opportunity to make a difference. It’s one of the things that makes being part of our team so rewarding.
To celebrate and honor some of the exceptional service, extraordinary actions, and valuable community outreach of our employees, beginning this month and continuing for the rest of the year we will share stories of Difference Makers.
Today we introduce you to Beth Geiler, a shuttle driver and trained nurse who joined Towne Park in August 2015. Beth works the night shift at a hospital in Illinois, where she is known for not only being a good, dependable driver, but someone who really cares about and connects with people.
Recently, Beth went above and beyond at work, showing her exceptional character. While driving her shuttle route, she saw two individuals on the side of the road slumped over, seemingly lifeless in their car. She stopped her shuttle, immediately called security, and together with another passerby administered CPR. Security and medical personnel soon arrived. Knowing the individuals were in capable hands, Beth then continued on her route.
Beth made a difference on that day, and continues to every day on her shuttle. In the words of a hospital employee:
“I am writing to you because I need to acknowledge your shuttle bus driver Beth Geiler. She is always friendly, makes me feel safe and is a great driver. I really appreciate her and when I see her it makes my day…. I hope she gets recognized. Yesterday she saved two guys’ lives. She is always attentive when she is driving and that’s what makes her good. The police officer gave her a hug and told her she saved their lives. I was getting on the shuttle right when this happened.”
Beth is a true Difference Maker and we are proud to have her Leading, Serving, and Growing at Towne Park.
