yay!!!! RTM did something really really great by employing Mr. Wayne McAllister!! He was my fifth grade elementary school grade teacher. He was such an ispiration to me. I can still remember creative writing assignments I did in his class all these years later. He was the one teacher that had a positive impact on me in school and I never ever forgot that. I wish I was still driving a bus with the district but having to retire , I will make it a pint to stop up and see Mr. Mac. Awesome Job RTM!!! DKP
