Love The Bus 2012

Many schools in North Carolina celebrated “Love the Bus” as part of a national campaign by the American School Bus Council to encourage bus driver appreciation and promote bus safety awareness.  More than 25 million students ride the bus in the United States each day, including nearly 800,000 students in North Carolina.
