NAPT Summit adds 2 speakers

Posted on August 2, 2012

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two guest speakers have been added to the lineup for the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) Summit here in October.

Michael Eugene is chief operations officer of Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) in Orlando, Fla. Officials said he facilitates high-performing services in the areas of student transportation, food and nutrition services, information technology, safety and security, purchasing services, supply and distribution, environmental services and building code enforcement.

Prior to his position at OCPS, Eugene served as the business manager for the Los Angeles Unified School District, and the chief operating officer for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.

Since 2005, Eugene has served in a voluntary capacity as the co-director of the Council of Great City Schools' "Managing for Results in America's Great City Schools" key performance indicator program.

Anne S. Ferro, administrator of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), is also scheduled to speak at the Summit.

In her first two years as administrator of the agency, officials said Ferro has led FMCSA's actions to fulfill its safety-focused mission, including rules to ban texting and hand-held cell phone use for truck and bus drivers, and an hours-of-service rule for trucking to reduce the risk of fatigue-related crashes.

Prior to her role at the FMCSA, Ferro led the Maryland Motor Truck Association as its president and CEO from 2003 to 2009. She also served as the state of Maryland's motor vehicle administrator from 1997 to 2003.

Previously announced scheduled speakers include Alan Brunacini, Melinda Jacobs and Christopher A. Hart.
