Newry Coach Lines would like to recognize Larry Morrison.
Larry was first hired in 2005 as a part-time/spare driver. Always the cheerful one in a room, Larry is the employee we all are looking for. Always in early to sweep his bus, Larry has been driving full-time since 2010. He time-shares a route with another driver as this allows Larry to work at his other job while still keeping him in the front seat of his bus. He is always communicating with the other driver regarding his previous trip and current student support strategies.
Larry has quipped many times that if he won the lottery, he would quit his other job and drive bus full time, as this is what he really enjoys. We constantly talk with our drivers about becoming engaged with the students, as this is a great way to help eliminate discipline issues. There is hardly a day goes by that Larry doesn’t come into the office at days end with a story about one of his students and what they have been up to.
The biggest compliment that any driver could get was paid to Larry just this week. One of our ESL students gave Larry a note at end of day thanking him for being her driver and making her feel safe on the bus. Does it get any better than that?
Any company would do well to have a whole complement of “Larry’s” working for them.
