October Knox County Schools Bus Driver Safety Awards

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 11, 2016 – The Knox County Schools Bus Driver Safety Awards will be presented 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, Oct. 19, at Ted Russell Ford, 8551 Kingston Pike. The monthly awards are sponsored by Ted Russell Ford and WIVK.

Each month five drivers will be honored and given a Certificate of Appreciation from Knox County Schools along with a $100 check from Ted Russell Ford.

These awards were initiated to honor the Knox County Schools’ bus drivers that do an excellent job in transporting our children every day. The five drivers honored each month have been graded with high standards by the Knox County Schools, the contractors, the Sheriff’s department and by school staff.

A special thank you to Andy White, the owner of Ted Russell Ford and WIVK 107.7 for sponsoring these awards.
