Young Man Serves City As Honorary PW Director Oct. 10

For a day, the City of Reidsville had a new Public Works Director.


The City offered ten-year-old Bryce Cabe to be Reidsville’s Honorary Public Works Director for the Day on Tuesday, October 10, 2023. Bryce had recently been given the opportunity to graduate high school early through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Upon his graduation from Reidsville High School, the City thought he might be looking for a job, according to City Manager Summer Woodard. After speaking with his family, City staff learned he would like to work in the Public Works area.


His one-day itinerary started with a fire and police escort of Bryce and his family to the Public Works Department on Vance Street, where they were warmly welcomed by Mayor Donald Gorham, Public Works Director Josh Beck and his staff. The young man then got the opportunity to review the department’s inventory of equipment and heavy machinery before touring the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant and two sites under construction, the Penn House Event Center and the Splashpad on Scales Street.


The Reidsville Fire Department then gave him a ride on one of its fire trucks to Reidsville City Hall where he ended his work day that afternoon with a “Meet and Greet” with Reidsville City Council and other City staff. At that night’s regular Council meeting, Mayor Gorham presented Bryce with a Proclamation, a collection of challenge coins and a bag of goodies from the Police Department.


“Reidsville City staff did an outstanding job making Bryce’s time as Public Works Director memorable,” Mayor Gorham said. “While he really wants to be a surgeon, we may have convinced him to try municipal service as a career. We’d like to thank his family for allowing us to spend this special day with him.”
