DCSD driver places 1st in School Bus Rodeo
PUEBLO- Les Lilly took first place in the Colorado State Pupil Transportation Association’s School Bus Rodeo, held on June 20 in Pueblo.
The competition began with a written test and then the drivers headed to a rigorous driving course, which tested perception and reaction. The course had several surprises including diminishing clearance, a serpentine lane and the challenge of parallel parking one of those lovely, big, yellow vehicles. They were also tested with an “emergency” scenario.
In the end, Les Lily came out on top, claiming first place and a spot at the International Roadeo Competition, which was held on July 15th in Milwaukee Wisconsin.
