Hats off to Minnesota school bus drivers on the 22nd of February!
Driving school bus has long been undersold as a possible career choice. While it may not be as fancy or upscale as some professions, it is at least twice as important! These people who are constantly under appreciated are finally receiving a small piece of recognition! It is not nearly enough when you consider that these citizens have dedicated their lives to making sure that our children are transported in the safest manner to school and back home.
Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius said,“School bus drivers are often the first person a student interacts with every morning, and the last person they see from school in the afternoon.” The state will be hosting a press conference near the capital in the drivers honor. Several driver’s will be in attendance! Students are encouraged to send cards to their drivers to express their appreciation.
I hope to see more states following in Minnesota’s foot steps in the next few months or years!
