Tracadie Cross Consolidated School Bus Driver Receives Home and School Federation Award

On Tuesday, June 23, 2009, the Prince Edward Island Home and School Federation presented a School Bus Driver of the Year Award to Leonard Mullen, bus driver for Tracadie Cross Consolidated School.

“Dear Leonard, you keep me safe every day. You are always so funny and put a smile on my face. Oh, what a wonderful bus driver you are. For so many years you have kept me safe, so thank you Leonard.” Sincerely, (Student) at Tracadie Cross Consolidated.

It is difficult to sum up in a short paragraph the wonderful contribution Leonard has made to the education system over his career that has spanned nearly four decades! He has welcomed hundreds of anxious faces to their first day of school. He carefully and conscientiously drives our children to and from school each day. He has earned the respect of his passengers through his dry wit and his concern for each student.

“Leonard was selected as the Eastern School District recipient for outstanding service in keeping children safe as they travel to and from school each day – driving capably and professionally, teaching students about safety, managing behaviour, and caring for the well-being of every child, every day of the school year.” says Bill Whelan, President of the PEI Home and School Federation.

Bus drivers are the first school employees our children see each day, and the last at the end of the day. Many children spend hours every week on the bus, and the quality of that experience makes a big difference to their lives. The Federation is pleased to recognize Leonard Mullen as our Eastern School District 2009 School Bus Driver of the Year.
