School Bus Driver Acknowledged for 35 Years of Service to One School

Honored by School District, Sally SollarsWarren Buffett, an American investor, business magnate and philanthropist once said “In looking for people to hire, you look for three qualities: integrity, intelligence and energy.” "Driver Sally Sollors exemplifies these three attributes," explained Della Spencer, Location Manager in Kincardine, Ontario.

Sally was recognized by First Student and G.C. Huston Public School at a school assembly, in early February, for being the longest serving bus driver in the region. Sally received a certificate of appreciation and a plaque that commemorated her 35 years of transporting students without accident or incident.

“It’s drivers like Sally who are the backbone of our organization,” said Multi-Safety Coordinator Phil Sargent. “We’ve had other long-term drivers but have never had a driver like Sally who has driven the same route for the same school for this long.”

Sally’s Port Elgin team members also speak highly of her. They describe her as a true professional and someone who embraces new technology like the Zonar system and has an unwavering commitment to her passengers.

She plans to retire this spring.
