HUDSON, Ohio — Securement supplier AMF-Bruns of America is once again planning to recognize with an award a special-needs school bus driver who goes above and beyond.

For its second annual National Special-Needs School Bus Driver of the Year Award, AMF-Bruns said it is looking for a special-needs driver who has distinguished themselves through “special accomplishments, meritorious and heroic acts, and innovations to improve their jobs.”

The award winner will receive a $1,000 check from AMF-Bruns, which provides wheelchair occupant securement equipment for school buses and other vehicles.

AMF-Bruns presented its first award to Tammy Cummings, a bus driver and safety trainer for Greenville County (S.C.) Schools, in November. Cummings was honored for her actions to keep her students safe when a tractor-trailer hit her bus in March.

The enrollment deadline for the award is Aug. 1. For more information, go to amfbrunsamerica.com/awards.php.
