First Student celebrates its employees


CINCINNATI — First Student is recognizing its nearly 60,000 drivers, attendants, technicians, managers and additional staff with employee appreciation days Tuesday through Thursday this week.

Officials said every First Student location will hold an event to honor employees for their hard work and commitment to the communities they serve.

“Our employees are truly deserving of this special recognition,” First Student President Dennis Maple said. “We appreciate our employees’ dedication to safety and the seriousness with which they take the responsibility of safely transporting 6 million students to and from school each day. It is their commitment on which First Student builds the foundation for the extraordinary level of service we strive to provide the school districts and families who rely on us.”    

Employee appreciation days will include a celebratory breakfast or lunch at all of the nearly 550 First Student locations.

In addition, officials said members of the company’s regional and corporate management teams will be visiting more than 75% of First Student locations across North America to thank employees for supporting the company’s vision of keeping people moving and communities prospering.
