The school buses we run in North America are part of the fabric of the local communities they operate in. They provide a vital link which ensures students reach school safely. The exceptional work carried out by our employees does not go unrecognised. An example of this last year was when we were honoured by the Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kansas as a 2014 ‘Friend of Education’ for its excellent service to the district in providing student transportation.
“Durham School Services sees transportation as an extension of Blue Valley’s educational efforts. Durham’s attention to detail, customeroriented approach, and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty has helped to bring Blue Valley’s mission of ‘Education Beyond Expectations’ to life,” said Steve Davis, Director of Business Operations for Blue Valley School District.
Each year, the Blue Valley Board of Education recognises organisations and individuals who have played a critical role in bringing leadership and quality in education to the district. According to Steve Davis, recipients of the Friend of Education awards understand that student success depends on the combined efforts of the community.
