KCSOS’s Transportation Services held its annual Safe Driving Awards Assembly on Aug. 11 in conjunction with the CHP
Pat Shaw, who has driven a bus for KCSOS for 31 years, gets a standing ovation from her peers and a warm send-off to retirement during the 2014 Transportation Services awards ceremony.
CHP Safe Driving Certificates are awarded to drivers who have driven at least 10 years or a minimum of 100,000 miles without a preventable accident.
