APPLE VALLEY – It is always good to know that our children are in good hands when they go to school but the people that usually come to mind are teachers, principals, and other administrative staff. Of course, for bus riders, the bus driver is an essential part of getting your children to school safely. What about the mechanic who is responsible to keep the bus properly running?
Michael Schreiner Jr., a mechanic for Apple Valley Unified School District (AVUSD), is California’s Best Mechanic. How do we know? Schreiner was named that at the “California’s Best Mechanic” at the California Association of School Transportation Officials (CASTO) Mechanic’s Workshop, held June 30-July 1 at Lake Tahoe High School.
This two-day competition included a series of both written and hands-on tests, testing the knowledge of each mechanic.“When the results came in, and it was announced that he had won, I was beside myself with excitement and pride,” Sandy Dillman, AVUSD Director of Transportation, said.
If being the best in California is not enough, Schreiner and Dillman will be representing the AVUSD and the State of California at the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s Annual Summit this fall. This will be held in Kansas City, Mo. and the top mechanics throughout the U.S. and British Columbia will be in attendance.
