January 28, 2019 – Sarasota County Schools learned today of the passing of Ms. Dee White, a long-time school bus driver and representative of the SC/TA. Ms. White first began as a bus driver in 1991 and quickly became a favorite among students and staff. In her role with the SC/TA, Ms. White was instrumental in representing classified school district employees and promoting an atmosphere of positive change among school administrators, the SC/TA and employees.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dee on various levels,” noted Todd Bowden, superintendent of Sarasota County Schools. “She was quick to ask questions, learn both sides of an argument and maintain a fair and consistent voice for her peers and colleagues. Her role as an intermediary will be missed, and we send her friends and family our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”
Information regarding services and ways to celebrate the life of Ms. Dee White will be forthcoming.
