Calling all heroes!

A new feature in SCHOOL BUS FLEET will profile people in the industry who have saved a life or performed some other heroic act.

Candidates should work in pupil transportation in some capacity, and their heroism — whether it was on or off the job — should have taken place approximately within the past year.

If you know of someone who fits that description, send us an e-mail at info@schoolbusfleet.com with a brief explanation of his or her daring deed.

We’ll accept nominations until Friday, Nov. 12.
