One thing any PEI Home and School Federation past-president will tell you is that one of the highlights of the official duties of the office is the presentation of the School Bus Driver of the Year awards.
This year I had the pleasure of recognizing Johnny Deagle, a bus driver for Souris Consolidated, with this award. We presented to him at the closing celebration for the school, a rollicking musical event held in the Eastern Kings Sportsplex.
One of Johnny’s many talents is as a musician, so, by chance, I got to present to him just as he was walking off the stage after playing, with a bunch of students, a rendition of Wagon Wheel with words rewritten for the occasion.
Because Oliver and Ethan were along for the trip, they got to come up on stage for the presentation with me.
