On Friday afternoons, she creates an ingenious plan which includes arranging older students to come along for the ride to further educate the kids called ‘special guest reader.’

Callison explained:

“The way this works is when students get on the bus they can get up to three books. After they read those, they can share with students around them, then put them back in the bucket on the way out the door.”

Everybody had only good things to say about the bus driver. Her good intentions are unquestionable. Some of the reactions the kindhearted woman's good deeds warranted were:

Callison is building great leaders of tomorrow, and we appreciate her. The world needs more innovations like this so the children can have a bright future.
