We'd like to send out a special thanks this week to the hard-working men and women who take care of MoDOT's mascot Barrel Bob in the Central District!
Meet the Barrel Bob bunch:
District General Services Manager Coleen Welter is the coordinator for Barrel Bob. If Bob needs to hit the road, she makes sure of the who's, what's, when's, where's and how's.
Senior Equipment Technician Allen Kliethermes makes sure that repairs are made to Barrel Bob and that he's looks as good as a 12-foot orange guy can possibly look.
Meanwhile, Senior Supply Agents Alvin Wolfe, Keith Jacobsen and Equipment Technician Rodney Colbert, work with our maintenance staff across the Central District to make sure that Bob is dressed to the nines, buckled up, strapped down and is chauffeured wherever he needs to go.
That can be quite the job. Because our man Bob is seriously in demand. The Big Guy has quite the travel itinerary. One week he's living it up in Rolla, the next he's hanging out in Columbia and then the following week he's chillin' at the Lake of the Ozarks. And it's the hard-working staff that makes Bob's appearances possible.
Thank you once again for everything that is done behind the scenes to make sure Bob shows up on time and looks like a million bucks.
Keep up the good work!
