Transportation Angels on Wheels – By Carl IngramCarl Ingram Safety Director

Each day in the state of Michigan, students are being transported to and from school safely by caring bus individuals such as Drivers, Bus Attendants, Para-Pro’s, and Nurses while riding on the yellow school bus.  Not to mention all the people working behind the scene daily.  These dedicated people go well beyond the call of duty in providing a safe haven for our future generation and building relationships that can last a lifetime.

These angels on wheels protect students from being bullied during their ride by displaying positive behavior and creating a respectful environment for all students.  Many of these professionals nurture students by teaching them to read a book during their daily commute.  Their job is to always be on the lookout for danger that a child may not see coming, such as the recent incident that made national news where a driver lost his life while trying to protect his students. Even in the face of danger this driver did not hesitate to defend his students on board his bus.

As drivers, bus attendants, para-pro’s, and nurses get ready to depart the bus lot, you can hear them saying “let me go pickup my babies” or “little darlings.” You know that they have pride in what they are doing by showing love as they travel the road ahead. Many of them even volunteer at school functions and show support by attending sporting events just to see the smiles on the students’ faces.  So I say to each one of these employees on the yellow school bus, you have indeed earned your “Wings” as a protector of our future generation.  Therefore, we can assure parents that their children are in good hands each day when they are being transported here in Michigan and beyond, so be safe as you travel the road ahead!

Teamwork was in full effect this summer while we provided service to the JCC summer camps. Every summer, the Jewish Community Center offers more than 100 programs and trips to the area’s youth. This was the first year we handled both national and local trips and it was a huge success! The trips were a collaborative effort amongst the school bus and motorcoach departments. A big Thank You to everyone who helped build our relationship with JCC. Craig Kimball, Bobby Stubbs, and Lamont Twitty were all key members in helping the local school bus trips run smoothly and efficiently. They provided excellent assistance to campers, parents, counselors, and other drivers. On behalf of everyone you helped, thanks for your commitment to our team!
