LESTER LEMASTERS – MONONGALIA COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA
Every day, all over the US and Canada, school bus drivers make a difference in the lives of children. So, in 2006, as a way to recognize those drivers, Thomas Built Buses established the “Children’s Choice School Bus Driver of the Year” essay contest.
The contest invites children across the North America to nominate their favorite school bus driver and thank them for their dedicated service. Now in its fifth year, the national essay contest has become a new Thomas Built tradition.
And the 2010 Children’s Choice Drivers of the Year are:
DRIVER – LESTER LEMASTERS
NOMINATING CHILD – CHANCELLOR
- Number of Years Driving a School Bus – 6
- Type of Bus – Bluebird
- School District – Monongalia County Schools, Morgantown, West Virginia
- Favorite thing about being a school bus driver – “I love to see the kids and hear all the stories they have to tell.”
