2016 OSBA Driver Excellence Award Winner
The Ontario School Bus Association is very pleased to announce that Moira McKibben, of Switzer-Carty Transportation's Mississauga location, is the winner of the 2016 OSBA Driver Excellence Recognition Award. A number of extraordinary nominations were received from OSBA members, making it a very difficult task to choose only one winner!
Moira has been a school bus driver for 31 years with an impeccable, accident-free driving record and has maintained a 'perfect' attendance record at Switzer-Carty Transportation. Moira is dedicated to be being there for her students and keeping them safe every day with dependable, safe, reliable service. Her driving and service record is admirable but that is not the only contributing factor to make Moira the perfect choice for this year's award. School bus drivers are special and many go well above and beyond their normal or expected duties. Moira is one of these people!
The school board transportation department in Peel Region praised Moira for what they learned was a wonderful act of kindness for one of her students and his Grandmother who is his caregiver. She donated a meal so that a family in need and struggling would have a wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner. Upon receiving the gift of kindness, the Grandmother phoned the school in tears to express her gratitude for the wonderful meal and her appreciation to have such a wonderful caring person in their lives such as Moira.
"We are proud to have Moira representing Switzer-Carty Transpiration each and every day….her kind, caring and generous nature is amazing" said Jim Switzer, CEO and President of Switzer-Carty Transportation.
