Pictured above are John Ferguson, Superintendent Kountze ISD, Sharon Bohler, Transportation Supervisor, Charlena McNeely, Bus driver of the year, Jeff Freeman, Director of Maintenance and Transportation.

Charlena McNeely, a Kountze ISD school bus driver, was recently honored by PCAT (Property Causality Alliance of Texas) as the 2014-2015 Bus Driver of the Year for Kountze ISD.  The award was presented to Charlena by Jeff Freeman, Sharon Bohler, Phillip Welch and John Ferguson on 18 Dec 2014 at Kountze transportation Department.  The award was based upon multiple driver attributes: Leadership, Attitude, Perseverance, Student and Parent Relationships, and Technical Skill. 

Student transportation in a yellow school bus continues to be the safest mode of transportation to and from school, due in a large part to the skill and dedication of those who drive school buses. With the PCAT Bus Driver of the Year program drivers are recognized who have made exemplary efforts to provide for the safety, education, and happiness of school children. 

Kountze ISD is proud to have a great staff of transportation professionals that do a terrific job each and every day of the year.  Congratulations to Charlena McNeely.
