WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB? I love what I do and enjoy my job in purchasing/warehouse, but most of all I feel very blessed working with such great group of men and women. We all work so well together and it is the best place to work.

WHAT THE BOSS SAY ABOUT HER: “Beverly is such an asset to Abilene ISD and our department.  She is self-motivated and has an impeccable work ethic.  Bev goes above and beyond daily to serve the staff of Abilene ISD and does this with a smile and sweet spirit.  She has a great attitude and an extremely funny sense of humor (even when she does not realize she is being funny). It is my pleasure and honor to work with Beverly every day and appreciate her dedication to the district.”   – Lisa Metcalf, Director of Purchasing
