Grand Ledge students have been recognized for quick, heroic actions on a school bus. The Grand Ledge Board of Education honored them March 14 for assisting a bus driver who had a medical emergency while driving.
Superintendent Dr. Marcus Davenport said, “I understand that there were multiple children that assisted a bus driver that was in a medical state of need. But these two young men are the two young men that we’re going to honor at this time.”
On Feb. 24 around 6:45 a.m., a bus driver taking students to Grand Ledge schools started to experience a medical condition and had to pull over, but was unable to tell dispatch what was wrong. One student on the bus called 911 while another alerted dispatch that something was wrong.
“Kai Trey is a young man who assisted a bus driver who was going through a medical emergency,” Davenport said.
