Prince Receives Lifetime Service Award
Roy Prince received the Lifetime Service Award from the Student Transportation Association of Kentucky and the Kentucky Department of Education Pupil Transportation. The award is presented to acknowledge a person’s lifetime commitment to the safety and well-being of students. Prince is among a select group to receive this honor presented in front of around 450 colleagues from across the state at the annual conference for transportation personnel and district administrators.
“I was shocked and humbled,” Prince responded to this distinguished honor. After receiving the Lifetime Service Award, Prince had the opportunity to present the Driver Trainer of the Year Award to a colleague from Woodford County. This award is special to Roy Prince, especially since during his career he has trained more than 7500 bus drivers.
Prince, the Director of Transportation for Scott County Schools, worked for 23 years at the Kentucky Department of Education. During his tenure at KDE he supervised transportation, managed safety programs, trained drivers, and worked closely with the Kentucky State Police to administer the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) test for bus drivers.
Scott County Schools manages a fleet of 82 buses on 70 routes which travel more than a million miles each year to transport students safely to and from school. “My most important goal is to ensure students remain safe,” Prince said. Bus routes are being finalized for the 2014-2015 school year and will be ready to transport precious cargo on the first day of school, August 6, 2014.
