February 2013 - Lt. Greg McAlister
Lt. McAlister has exhibited an extraordinary amount of pride and drive in his duties with the Big Spring Fire Department. This pride has been made apparent through a recent e-mail from the daughter of a recent EMS patient. On this particular occasion, Lt. McAlister went above and beyond his duties. Not only did he treat the patient with care, he kept the patient’s daughter updated on his condition while transporting him to a specialty hospital. After the ambulance arrived at the hospital, Lt. McAlister continued to update the daughter while she was on her way to meet them.

April 2013 - Ray Bryant
Our "April 2013 Star" is Ray Bryant, Sanitation Truck Driver. As a Sanitation Driver, it is not uncommon to come across trash cans overturned by the constant winds we experience in Big Spring. On one certain occasion, a Big Spring resident witnessed Mr. Bryant leave his sanitation truck, right their trash can, empty it, and kindly place it on the sidewalk. According to the resident, Mr. Bryant “exemplified the word ‘service’ by correcting what the winds had created.”

August 2013 - Cpl. Daniel Reynoso
Our "August Star Employee" is Cpl. Daniel Reynoso of the Big Spring Police Department. On Friday, June 14, 2013, Cpl. Reynoso performed a routine patrol of the Big Spring Mall. During the patrol, he came upon several minors loitering outside the entrance to the mall. Cpl. Reynoso spoke to the minors, monitored their behavior, and even offered his cell phone so they could call for rides home. Even after being confronted by some less-than-respectful minors and parents, Cpl. Reynoso maintained a calm and professional attitude. According to a citizen’s letter to the editor in our local newspaper, Cpl. Daniel Reynoso is a “class act.”
