Here’s Audrey’s story:

When I arrived back to Samford after Thanksgiving break, my car battery had died.  On Monday night I was attempting to jump my car (and had no idea what I was doing) with no luck; that is when the shuttle driver, Tito, drove up in the shuttle and asked if I was okay. Within the next ten minutes Tito had pushed my car out of the parking spot by himself and jumped my car for me. Tito was about to go home for the night and took the time to help me start my car in the cold, and did it all with an incredible, servant-hearted attitude. Samford is incredibly lucky to have Mr. Tito! 

By the way, if you haven’t met him, the person referenced in Audrey’s message is Tito Haire.  He’s a valued member of our shuttle-driving team and perhaps the most popular person on campus.

The world is better because of Tito Haire and the great people who take care of our students and employees, 365 days a year.  (Actually, next year it will be 366.)
