Congratulations Tammy Cummings, Special Needs Bus Driver, as winner of the annual National Special-Needs School Bus Driver Of The Year Award. She works for the Greenville County School System in South Carolina.

As a special-needs driver and trainer with a special-needs child, Tammy was directly involved in a head-on collision in which a tractor trailer crossed the double line, spun out of control hitting her school bus. Tammy stayed calm and stopped the bus to lessen the force of the collision. She had the wherewithal to keep the children in the bus to avoid downed power lines. See more at the New York Post
