News from the Adair County Schools
Transportation Director, David Jones says these two drivers will be hard to replace.
Each year David Jones, Transportation Director for Adair County Schools, honors district bus drivers with a luncheon and awards program. This year, the school district and its nearly fifty other drivers paid special tribute to outgoing employees Creed Lacy and Bobby Pelston.
Lacy has been the smiling face behind the wheel for 46 years. He has come to know three generations of students and their families along his route which covers the Fairplay area.
Jones said, "It's a great loss to our system, because Creed knows every student and their families."
"I'll tell you what; it's hard to leave this group of drivers I work with. I've been here 46 years and I don't regret a single minute of it. I love our kids," said Lacy.
Bobby Pelston (R) is retiring after 25 years. Jones said he will be sorely missed because of his compassion for the special needs children he has transported. "He went out of his way to be kind and caring," said Jones.
School buses in Adair County safely transported students nearly half a million miles this year. For more on the Adair County Schools, click to Adair County Schools
