Road Stories



This page is dedicated to the men and women who safely transport Missouri's students to and from school each day.  If you have a driver or attendant in your district who you feel deserves special recognition - whether for a milestone anniversary, or for service "above and beyond" the call of duty - please contact Shirley Francis, MAPT Executive Director, to submit your story.
