Gary Young’s coworkers chose him as the 2018 Duncanville ISD Bus Driver of the Year. His peers say he is well respected and takes pride in transporting his students safely.
“He knows every route, and he can drive any of the many different types of buses in the district,” said Operations Manager Mac Mcgee.
Duncanville ISD’s Risk Management Department, in conjunction with the district’s insurer, Property Casualty Alliance of Texas, annually nominates a Bus Driver of the Year.
Nominations are evaluated based on five attributes: leadership, attitude, perseverance, student and parent relationships and technical skill. Exceptional drivers demonstrate a consistent desire to positively influence both students and co-workers through their actions and attitudes.
Mr. Young will now advance to the state level where he will compete against other bus drivers from across Texas. He will also be recognized before the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees later this month.
