David Marquardt, Oregon City bus driver, wins safety awards
David Marquardt has been driving a school bus for less than a year, but last month he placed first in a regional school bus safety competition and then took second in the state competition.
"David is a new driver, and in his first year on the job he's made a big impact on the children he transports," said Becky Adovnik, head of transportation training and safety for the Oregon City School District. "He competed in a field of 31 at the state competition and placed fifth overall. He takes great pride in his job. We're very proud of the great job he's doing to keep kids safe."
Marquardt transports students from Beavercreek Elementary, Oregon City High School and Ogden Middle School.
