Minnesota's Driver Appreciation Day
Wednesday, February 28th
There will be many events happening throughout MN.
The MAPT announced the theme for this year's event is 'Celebrating our Humble Heroes.' We think this theme is fitting for school bus drivers who work hard each day to keep kids safe. 
At 10 am on February 28th, a press conference will be held in the Twin Cities which will include remarks from a school superintendent, a principal, a State legislator, a State Patrol official, and others. At the event, students and parents will hand out food and beverages to school bus drivers to show gratitude for the work they do each day. Exceptional school bus drivers will also be recognized at this event. If you know of any exceptional school bus drivers in your community who should be recognized, email Kate Braun at Kate@GoffPublic.com . This press conference is just one component of what we hope will be a large-scale day of appreciation across Minnesota.
