Educational Bus Transportation has promoted Dawn McGrath to assistant vice president of operations for the contractor fleet, which serves students in school districts in New York's Nassau and Suffolk counties.
"For 35 years, Dawn has been part of the Educational Bus family, beginning as a bus driver before moving on to dispatcher and eventually operations manager," said John Corr, the company CEO. "Every step of the way, she has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to excellence and safety. She is a consummate professional who possesses the skills and ability that are essential to excellence in student transportation."
McGrath reports directly to Patti Royce-Moser, vice president of operations, helping to provide support, leadership, and direction to Educational Bus Transportation’s operating locations throughout Long Island. She also will help control the daily operation of all transportation contracts, in compliance with the policies of the contracting agencies and in conformance with company policies and procedures.
Last year, McGrath received The Golden Merit Award from the National School Transportation Association (NSTA) at its annual meeting and convention. Among the highest honors in the school transportation industry, The Golden Merit Award recognizes school transportation professionals for their outstanding achievements in service and safety.
