School bus drivers and bus aides at Durham University Solutions, which serves Pinelands Regional and Little Egg Harbor college districts, have submitted a winning entry in Durham College Services’ National Driver Video Contest. Team members entered their online video in the group category. 
Newbie singer/songwriter Grove Conrad, a Durham School Services bus driver himself, organized the winning video featuring himself and 10 of his team users, “The Busettes,” singing of masks and children and yellow buses. “I’ve had a good deal of enjoyment with my tunes more than the a long time this minimal online video and its song might not be Billy Walton, but it certain honors an remarkable spouse and children of university bus drivers and bus aides,” mentioned Conrad.
The selection criteria was based on being capable to effectively communicate the importance of their roles in being unsung heroes in their community and their dedication to their occupation and the well-staying of students.
Patricia Manzoni, general supervisor of the Small Egg Harbor team of motorists and aides, claimed, “This previous 12 months was the most complicated we have ever confronted in our scholar transportation field. We are a sturdy crew, and we rolled our buses each individual one working day. It was a huge team hard work and being selected as a winner is well-deserved recognition for us all.”
The income prize from the contest will be donated to a fellow Durham School Services driver who missing her Minimal Egg Harbor household in the devastating Tall Timbers hearth in May well.  —P.J.
