CROWLEY – Frances Deshotel, Evangeline Elementary school bus driver, was honored at the recent Acadia Parish School Board meeting as the 2009 Acadia Parish School Bus Driver of the Year.
The award is sponsored by the Property Casualty Alliance of Louisiana (PCALTM), through Edwards Risk Management, North American Solutions, and Risk Services of Louisiana.
The award is based upon multiple driver attributes: leadership, attitude, perseverance, student and parent relationships and technical skill.
“The student transportation industry enjoys a stellar safety record, in large part because of the daily efforts of well-trained and caring school bus drivers. PCAL wishes to recognize those drivers who have made exemplary efforts to provide for the safety of our school children,” commented Aaron Ramsey of Edwards Risk Management.
Presenting the awards to Frances Deshotel were Steve Jones, transportation supervisor; Marie Janise, Evangeline Elementary principal and nominator; and Dora Johnson, transportation secretary.
