Fulton Schools to honor bus drivers at luncheon

Some 150 Fulton County Schools bus drivers will be recognized ahead of the new school year for their extraordinary service, officials said.

The Fulton Education Foundation, Family First Credit Union, NAPA Atlanta and the Atlanta Falcons are sponsoring the 11th annual Fulton’s Finest luncheon, where drivers will be honored for perfect attendance and accident-free driving records. The luncheon will take place Aug. 3 at the Omni Atlanta Hotel, 100 CNN Center in Atlanta, beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The back-to-school routine is not always a smooth adjustment for kids or their parents.

More than 800 drivers work for Fulton County Schools.

Those being recognized will be driven to the event in their buses, chauffeured by their supervisors.
