2016 MAPT SPECIAL NEEDS TEAM OF THE YEAR AWARD
"Dedicated" "Caring" "Extraordinary" These are but a few of the adjectives used to describe the men and women who transport children with disabilities every day. They often work as a team...the driver who safely and skillfully manuevers the bus, and the aide or attendant or monitor who looks after the child while he or she is loading, unloading or riding the bus. MAPT is proud to recognize the 2016 Special Needs Team of the Year, Driver Larry Wise and Attendant Carla Brewster from the Neosho R-5 School District.
