He•ro \he-rō\ or He•ro•ine \her-o-wen\ 1: A mythological or legendary figure of great strength or ability. 2: A person admired for his or her achievements and qualities.


he word conjures different embodiments of courageousness, nobility and action in the line of fire. Everyone has their own story of how a hero has affected them, whether the person literally saved a life or played a more low-key yet positively life-altering role.


Every day, school bus drivers literally and figuratively save the current and


future lives of the students in their care. They operate the safest mode of travel for students to receive a free public education, which provides each child with the opportunity to one day achieve the American dream. However, to a tee, school bus drivers respond that they don’t see themselves as


heroes. School bus drivers will point to first responders and members of the armed forces as heroes. School bus drivers see themselves as everyday people doing a job they love for the students they aspire to help. The passion of a student transporter is obvious, and it’s not for the paycheck or for the recognition. This month, School Transportation News focused on the unsung heroes, the


people behind the scenes who dedicate their careers to transporting students to and from school safety, especially those who are rarely recognized for their actions.
