SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Twelve school bus drivers representing several Student Transportation of America (STA) terminals set high standards this month during the 57th Annual Southern California Sectional Roadeo. As a team, STA drivers took home 11 of the 35 trophies.
One of the awards was the prestigious team title in the Best Represented category, which recognized STA for its hard work, dedication and high degree of professionalism.
The award is also designed to recognize the efforts of those involved with the roadeo, including the administration, transportation staff, mechanical staff, drivers and their families.
“We are very proud of our drivers and our safety trainers. These roadeo performances are a testament not only to our company's commitment to safety, but it represents the family atmosphere we have at STA in supporting all those who participate in events like this,” said Paula Sauvadon, STA's regional vice president of operations. “Our drivers know how important being a safe and skilled school bus driver is, and they take their training very seriously.”
The competition featured 131 school bus drivers from Southern California. All trophy winners will compete at the State Championship Roadeo, which will be held on May 30 at the Galt Market in Galt, Calif.
