Mrs. Tina Cook, Jasmine's Special Guest
On March 4th, 2010 a very friendly, humorous, special guest came to meet us! Jasmine invited her Grandma, Mrs. Tina Cook to come and speak to us about her job working on bridges! Have you ever met someone who works 64 feet up in the air? Mrs. Tina Cook has! She has worked on a bridge from underneath it in the Intracoastal Waterway!How do they do that you ask? Well, she was working on a man lift which was on top of a floating barge! If that doesn't impress you, this will! Mrs. Tina Cook was only 1 of 3 women on the crew. She worked with over 20 men on this job! She had to use the lifeskill of courage on this job! It was very challenging her for to do to all of these new tasks but when times got tough she would tell herself, "I can do this!". What a great lesson to us all! Next time we drive over a bridge I am sure we will all think of Mrs. Tina Cook!
