Excellence in Transportation is a prestigious award given to Oakland County School bus drivers. This year’s recipients from Lake Orion are Chad Sylvester (pictured, right) and Tim Clouse. Both Chad and Tim have given selflessly of themselves to assist LO Transportation and its’ drivers.
Chad has been a Lake Orion bus driver for five years. He has participated in two bus rodeos, a driving skills course competition. This has included a special-needs rodeo, as well as one for traditional school buses. Both were serious challenges with the many skilled bus drivers. Chad placed ninth in each competition and will participate in the 2017 rodeo. He also is a “Buster” team member who visits Lake Orion Schools to teach students bus safety.
Tim is a retired investment advisor with JP Morgan Chase and Anixter. Lake Orion Schools has been fortunate to have Tim as a bus driver for the past three-and-a-half years. A graduate of LOCS himself, he married his high school sweetheart and felt blessed to have all four of their children graduate from Lake Orion. Tim said that driving for Lake Orion is the best job, less stressful than his previous jobs.
Congratulations Chad and Tim for your excellence in transportation!
