School Bus Driver +++

Kiwanis Club member Jayne Jensen gave a very interesting program on her experience as a School Bus Driver for the Seward School system. That includes the St. John's Child Development Center as well as the Public school. She has been driving for a number of years and seems to really enjoy her passengers. It appears that she develops a "family type" relationship with the students and their parents. She went through all the safety regulations and told of the on-going discussion of seat belts. She arranged to have a school bus parked out it the lot for tours following the meeting. The newer buses seat back rest are much higher than those of the past as a safety feature. When she began driving, the buses were equipped with two-way radios for emergency communication. Now she says nearly everyone carries a phone which facilitates such communication. It's heartening to hear someone talk about a job in which they find so much satisfaction while being a "role model" for our children. Jayne also provides leadership to several Kiwanis Club Youth Projects. Thanks, Jayne, for all you do.
