Best bus driver
Kensington man receives one of 2015 Home and School Federation awards
As Steven Waugh walked to his school bus, one little girl ran up and said, “Steven, you’re the best bus driver in the world.”
This was after Waugh was recognized with the 2015 School Bus Driver Award, which took place at Queen Elizabeth Elementary recently.
The P.E.I. Home and School Federation annually recognizes two school bus drivers who go beyond what is expected of them, and leave a positive impact on students. The other recipient was a Charlottetown bus driver who was recognized earlier in the week.
At the end of Queen Elizabeth Elementary’s Peaceful Assembly, the Home and School Federation caught Waugh off guard by presenting him with the award.
“I was very surprised and honoured,” he said.
His father was also a bus driver, and he started his own career in 2000.
Waugh said it’s a great occupation because it leaves time for family and other jobs such as farming and fishing.
However, what he enjoys most is doing it for the children.
“Getting up in the morning and seeing the kids’ smiles is the best part.”
