The third annual Transportation Director Summit, a day and a half of networking and high-level discussions between student transportation leaders and sponsoring companies, kicked off at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in downtown Reno.

Tony Corpin, president and publisher of School Transportation News, emceed the opening event on Friday that also signaled the start of this year’s STN EXPO Reno. He facilitated a conversation on what inspires both the attendees and representatives from 15 industry suppliers to succeed, as well as who or what helped launch their careers.
