The Kannapolis Board of Education was proud to recognize outstanding KCS school bus drivers during its October board meeting.

KCS Bus Driver of the Year:

  • Lloyd Peugh:  Lloyd Peugh is the Kannapolis City Schools’ 2017-18 Bus driver of the year. He is a wonderful asset to the transportation department and truly cares for his students. He shows this in many ways including taking the time to have lunch with them. Even when some of the students’ behavior is not up to par, Mr. Peugh will council with them in order to correct the behaviors. Mr. Peugh has embraced the Positive Behavior Intervention System that we have put into place on our buses. He works diligently to encourage good behavior, and if he can’t figure it out, he will stop in the office to ask for advice. Whenever a bus breaks down, he is often the first to ask how he can assist the other driver. Mr. Peugh is extremely deserving of recognition and deserves the title of KCS Bus Driver of the Year. 


KCS Substitute Bus Driver of the Year:

  • Karen Hagl Matlock:Karen Hagl Matlock is our Substitute Bus Driver of the year for 2017-18. She not only is a wonderful instructional assistant at Woodrow Wilson but also an excellent substitute bus driver. Substitute drivers have the exceptionally difficult job of driving a different route each time they are asked to drive a bus. Mrs. Matlock does this weekly with a smile on her a face and a positive attitude. She has served as a substitute bus driver for several years and has only gotten better. The Transportation Department would love to steal her away as a permanent driver, but we know Mr. Irving and her colleagues at Woodrow Wilson would veto that idea. The Transportation Department is delighted to honor Mrs. Matlock as the substitute bus driver of the year.
