Bus driver recognized for defensive driving

Nadja Schlienger of First Student was recently recognized for her defensive driving while operating a school bus on June 16th, 2018. S/Sgt. Simons acknowledges that this recognition is long overdue.

Nadja was stopped at the intersection of Highway 9 and 13 east of Carlyle when she recognized that a semi was travelling too fast to negotiate the corner. She quickly moved her bus and crossed the highway. The semi rolled and landed where her bus had been sitting.
