Wendy Travis is someone you can count on to get your kids to school safely.

Travis, a bus driver for the Wappingers Central School District, was named the 16th annual Dutchess County School Bus Driver of the Year.

Travis has been with Wappingers for 29 years. She was presented Wednesday morning with a commemorative plaque.

"Parents entrust their children’s safety to school bus drivers each day, a great responsibility these men and women behind the wheel do not take lightly," County Executive Marc Molinaro said. This award reflects the community’s appreciation for their devotion to keeping our students safe. We commend Mrs. Travis for her superb safety record and thank her for her unwavering devotion to the children she transports every day.”

The Dutchess County Traffic Safety Board’s School Bus Driver of the Year award seeks to promote school bus safety through education and enforcement efforts. The annual award was initiated in 2002 to increase public awareness regarding school bus safety issues and to recognize school bus drivers who get children to and from school safely on a daily basis.
