Location #20466 in Mission Viejo, CA hosted a visit from two children with a fascination for school buses.
They were treated to a tour of the location and introductions to the drivers.
“It was refreshing to see children, who have never been on a school bus before, get so excited to step inside a bus,” said Location Manager Melvin Florence. “Their excitement and energy was so contagious. It definitely put what matters most back into perspective – the safety and reliability of school bus transportation.”
One of the parents wrote a note to the location expressing her thanks and gratitude for giving her daughter a memory she will always cherish. “I can’t thank all of you enough for making this visit so special for my little angel. Mr. Michael and Mr. Melvin went above and beyond to make her day the very best. The look on her face, the smile from ear-to-ear, the giggles and hearing her talk about the buses the whole way back home, and throughout the night, was priceless. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The love, professionalism and joy you have for your job was seen loud and clear that day.”
Team members gave each child a “Be Safe Riders” certificate and a school bus toy before they left.
Sometimes a child’s fascination becomes a career. Possibly, this location may have just recruited two future First Student drivers!
