From Director of School Facilities Thomas Powers: Ray is the work order technician for School Facilities and, although that’s his title, he’s so much more than that. He’s a true team player and believes in doing whatever it takes to be mission successful. If someone needs help, he’s always right there to lend a hand.
Aside from his duties as work order technician, he regularly assists the HVAC shop with indoor air quality analysis. He also tracks the maintenance fleet and vehicle fuel usage, assists with asset disposal procedures, converts paper documents to digital format for storage, and is our own IT guy for the office—though he probably didn’t know that. The list goes on and on.
Prior to coming to Calvert County Public Schools as an auto mechanic in 2006, Ray served our country in the military. He enlisted in the Marines in 2001 and served two tours in Iraq. After four years of active duty, he transitioned over to the Reserves, where he became a Staff Sergeant. He stayed in the active Reserves until his return to full civilian life in 2015. We are so fortunate Ray came to work for us, and he continues to be one of the true assets for School Facilities and for Calvert County Public Schools.
His dedication and hard work can be seen every day, and his unique personality and respect for others make it a pleasure to work beside him.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at email@example.com
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
