Students Collaborate To Thank Bus Drivers

Students Collaborate To Thank Bus Drivers
Posted on 10/21/2019

Three Louisa County High School students went above and beyond to show their appreciation for transportation workers at Louisa County Public Schools.

October 21st-25th is National School Bus Safety Week. To commemorate the special week, LCHS sophomores Anjelina Watson and Deirdre Varney, along with freshman Lesleyann Watson, worked together to create more than 60 “Thank You” jars. Each jar contained a thank you poem, a positive note of thanks, and candy.

The trio distributed the jars on Friday, October 18th as LCPS transportation drivers prepared for the end of the school day. The students approached each driver to say thank you and to hand them their jar.

“I want to commend these three young ladies for their awesome act of kindness,” LCPS superintendent Doug Straley said. “It speaks volumes about their character that they took the initiative to say thank you to our transportation team members. One of The Five Cs we teach here at Louisa County Public Schools is Citizenship, and these young ladies certainly demonstrated that they have developed that quality within themselves.”

In total, LCPS drivers transport approximately 4,000 students each day along more than 90 bus routes.
