According to the Bellingham Herald, Mark Miller, 36, a substitute school bus driver for Bellingham Public Schools in Bellingham, WA, placed first in his division in the National School Transportation Association. “It’s the biggest title in school transportation and it’s a real honor to get to carry the torch for a year,” Miller said. “I can’t imagine a better title to have than to be ranked No. 1 school bus driver.”
Miller, who works full time as a pilot for Allegiant Air and a flight instructor at Bellingham International Airport, has worked part time as a substitute school bus driver for Bellingham Public Schools since 2009.
The competition and the award are considered to be the industry’s highest achievement.
Congratulations to Mr. Miller!
