-Submitted by Bernie Nikolay: "Last night at the dinner table Evelyn, Colton, and Hunter were talking about Sam their bus driver. Nothing was negative; in fact it was the complete opposite. Sam says good morning to the kids when they get on the bus. Have a good night when they get off the bus. He always says hang on to the railing when going up and down the stairs. He doesn't start driving till all the kids are sitting. He is respectful, and as my kids say he is very compassionate about his job. I wanted to share this with you it warmed my heart and put a smile on my face. Colton decided he wanted to make Sam a Thank You card to show his appreciation." Thank You, Mrs. Benson
