Lexington One’s Blackwell named Humanitarian of the Year

LEXINGTON — A statewide bus driver organization recently honored Lexington District One’s Transportation Coordinator George L. Blackwell with one of its top honors.

During the South Carolina Association for Pupil Transportation Annual Conference on July 18, Blackwell received the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year award.

Director of Transportation William A. Kurts nominated Blackwell for the award, describing his years of dedication, compassion and service to school children. Kurts says Blackwell always greets bus drivers with a smile and “truly goes the extra mile” to ensure student safety.

Before joining Lexington District One, Blackwell worked for the South Carolina Highway Patrol and was assigned to the South Carolina Department of Education as safety coordinator.
