San Diego Unified Bus Drivers Captures 2nd Place in State Roadeo

On Memorial Day weekend, 46 school bus drivers across the state gathered in Galt, CA to compete in the 2009 Championship Roadeo, sponsored by the California Association of School Transportation Officials.

Six San Diego Unified bus drivers participated in the annual event. SDUSD’s David Lancaster won second place in the individual category. SDUSD’s team also won the second place team prize, missing first place by only three points.

The school bus Roadeo provides invaluable training and camaraderie in a volunteer setting.
