Drivers were nominated by their supervisors as the “Best From the Best” in school transportation. Individuals were considered based on their years of services, dedication to safety, service achievement and communication with school staff.

Opatz and the five other drivers were awarded a check of $1,000, which goes directly to a scholarship fund in the school district they serve.
