Award Winning Driver for Palmer Bus Service of Jackson 2017-2018

Jackson - Jim Bretzman

Jim has shown great leadership skills. Since I am unable to see the buses from my office, he lets me know if a driver is late or not here when they are supposed to be. Jim stepped up and was placed in charge on two days when I needed to be gone from the office. He handles scheduling decisions for me those days.
Jim was always here plenty early on those frigid days to make sure his and other buses started since they were sitting outside. He is ethical and conscientious in all he does, Jim doubled checked with me at times using blended fuel.
Jim demonstrates safety by properly doing a pretrip every day. He looks out for the safety of all the students on his bus and had even had me call when a special needs student is waiting too far into the street at her stop.
Jim volunteered to help pack food bags for the kids as part of a community service program for Palmer Bus and is a Meals on Wheels volunteer. He shows great community support by doing this and attending many athletic events.

Congratulations JIM!!!
Thanks for ALL you do EVERY day to make a difference!
