St. Francis Catholic School Students Recognized by Consortium for Heroic Actions in Bus Accident

St. Francis Catholic School students Jeffrey Bradley, Jesse MacDonald and Brennan Smith received Awards of Merit at last night’s Board Meeting from Jo-Anne Harrison, Manager, CEO, Sudbury Student Services Consortium. The students were recognized by the Board’s Trustees, Senior Administration, teachers, family and their peers for their quick thinking and unselfish actions in coming to the aid of fellow a student and the bus driver during a bus accident this past December.

The bus had flipped over on its side during the accident making an exit from either the side or rear doors impossible. The students managed to extricate the bus driver (who remained suspended in her seat by her seatbelt) and exited the bus through the roof escape hatch in order to call 911 and Emergency Services.
