DALE COUNTY: In honor of Charles Poland, Jr., who last year laid down his life protecting the children on his bus, the Alabama Legislature passed Senate Joint Resolution 87 sponsored by Senator Harri Anne Smith in 2013 proclaiming January 29th Public School Bus Driver Appreciation Day.
Our bus drivers are the first school employees our children see in the morning and the last they see in the evening. They are tasked with safely transporting children through all kinds of weather safeguarding them from many hazards to and from our homes each and every school day.
The Alabama Legislature encourages everyone to thank a bus driver for all they do to protect our most precious asset, our children.
