G. C. Huston Public School held another of its special  'spirit' assemblies on Thursday, February 2nd.

There were several highlights including a special award for one of the longest serving bus drivers in the region, Sally Sollors.

Phil Sargent presented a painting to Sally Sollors

Sollors has transported students on the same route for more than 35 years without accident or incident which means an exemplary safety record.

"Mrs. Sollors is not only still driving our students," said Principal Dan Russell, "but has also driven some of their parents when they were students at G. C. Huston."

 Phil Sargent of Regional Safety for First Student bus line and based in Toronto, presented Sollors with a special original painting depicting a bus on a rural route.

In addition, Della Spencer and Steve Lustig of the bus line Consortium in Grey-Bruce also  presented Sollors with a certificate of appreciation.

"It's drivers like Sally who are the backbone of our organization," said Sargent.  "We've had other long-term drivers but have never had a driver like Sally who has driven the same route for the same school for this long.  I am so impressed and it was absolutely worth the drive from Toronto to be here."
