Last month, Elkhart Yard hosted “Family Day” as an opportunity to say “thank you” – not only to our own team of railroaders, but also to the families that support them.
NS employees and family members of all ages joined the celebration at Elkhart Yard and enjoyed food, music, and family activities.
Surrounded by family and friends, several employees emphasized NS’ ‘I am coming home’ safety message and their team’s commitment to workplace safety to ensure that everyone goes home safely to their loved ones, each and every day.
“’I am coming home’ is absolutely a mentality. It has to motivate you and inspire you to do the right things for the right reasons,” said Will Deshazor, superintendent terminals, Elkhart. “That’s really what it’s about – to say ‘I am coming home’ at the end of the day because people are depending on me.”
