Ragone Honored With 2016 Safe School Bus Driver Award

Congratulations to South Colonie bus driver Dominick Ragone, who was honored by the Hudson Valley chapter of the American Automobile Association this spring with a 2016 Safe School Bus Driver Award for his superior dedication to the district during his 8-year career.

Ragone was nominated for the AAA award by the South Colonie Transportation Department for his exceptional work ethic, reliability, accident and safety record, job performance, and interaction skills with students and staff.

During his career, Ragone has transported hundreds of students safely to and from school, said Transportation Director Peter Tunny.

"Nick has always exhibited a positive attitude both out on the bus and back here in the drivers’ room," Tunny said. "He is constantly lightening the mood among his co-workers. Most importantly, he has an excellent safety record and has several perfect attendance school years under his belt."
