As everyone gets in the coordinating mood for Thanksgiving, we’d like to introduce our Facilities Coordinator, Todd Hurst. He’s been a part of our team for almost three years. Let’s take a moment to look at all things Todd:

  • My first job: Paperboy for the Daily Dispatch
  • Three things that you’ll always find in my refrigerator: (1) hummus, (2) 1% milk, and (3) horseradish
  • My favorite movie and reason why: Stagecoach (remake 1986) … I love country music, and this version starred Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. A great western movie involving Doc Holliday, Ringo Kid, Marshall Curly Wilcox, and Hatfield the Gambler.
  • My favorite book and reason why: The Holy Bible
  • My favorite inspirational quote: “Haste makes waste.”—Ben Franklin
  • If the story of my life was made into a movie, the actor or actress who would portray the part of me would be: Nick Nolte
  • The most famous person that I’ve ever met was: Barbara Bush when she was the First Lady, at St Barnabas Health Center. I used to sell them their uniforms.
  • When I was growing up, my friends called me: Toad
  • My dream vacation: Australia
  • My favorite business for exceptional customer service: Still looking for one  
  • Favorite restaurant in the Pittsburgh area: CC’s Café in Sharpsburg
  • Favorite entertainer: Blake Shelton

  • You’d be surprised to know the following interesting facts about me: I ran the half mile (800) in 1:57:8
  • Top three things on my “bucket list”: (1) sailplane ride, (2) rafting the Colorado River, and (3) taking a train ride from coast to coast.
  • If I could have dinner with any famous person, living or dead, I would choose to have dinner with: Glenn Curtis … Founder of the U.S. aircraft industry. He had an amazing, inventive mind! Just to talk about how he made all his ideas become reality!
  • Three things in life that I could really do without: (1) ex-wives, (2) bad memories, and (3) politics
  • The farthest destination from Pittsburgh, PA that I’ve ever been to on this Earth was: Palm Springs, California
  • Favorite coach ever, and why: UCLA basketball coach, John Wooden. I’ve coached basketball for 40 years, and loved all of his coaching ideas, as well as the offenses and defenses he ran.
  • Favorite iPhone app: Facebook

Big thanks to Todd.
