NEBO STUDENTS HONOR BUS DRIVERS AT SPECIAL EVENT

During "Love the Bus" week, Nebo Elementary made sure to honor the sometimes unsung heroes of most schools -- bus drivers. At a special luncheon to thank the 11 bus drivers at the school, students from all grade levels dropped off tokens and verbal thank yous to the crew of drivers that make getting to and from school possible for many. This is the first year that Nebo has recognized bus drivers separately from other faculty members. "We got the idea to recognize our bus drivers this week from the North Carolina Department of Instruction," said Principal Joyce Poplin. "Usually we just recognize everybody at the same time, but we thought this would be a great time to thank them for all that they do every day." Before lunch started, fifth-graders from Morgan Pittman's class stopped by to drop off a few thank yous.
