South Colonie Transportation school buses create a special message to recognize the Colonie Central High School graduating class of 2020.

While South Colonie school buildings may be closed, the South Colonie Transportation Department still found a special way to recognize the class of 2020.

Drivers arranged the buses to pay a special tribute to Colonie Central High School graduating seniors. 

“Many of our drivers have been transporting these students since they attended school for the very first time,” said Dr. Perry,  superintendent of schools.  “After seeing a heartwarming story about a district in Ohio and then a neighboring district replicate a special tribute, our transportation director gathered his team to pay honor to our South Colonie graduates.”

The transportation department gathered on Wednesday, May 27 to arrange the school buses.

“We want them to know how proud we are of them,” said Peter Tunny, director of the transportation department.  “We have seen so many of these kids climb on and off of our buses for the last 12 years, it is such a pleasure to recognize them even in the smallest way. Congratulations to all of our graduates.”
