Thomas McGoldrick named ‘Bus Driver of the Year’

Thomas (“Scotty”) McGoldrick was named Pennsbury’s 2019 “School Bus Driver of the Year” by Transportation Director Charlie Williams at the bus drivers’ annual kick-off meeting in August.

Scotty, who has served as a Pennsbury driver for 17 years, currently transports students on Bus #123 to Oxford Valley Elementary School, the middle school campus, and to Pennsbury High School. He also drives students on classroom extension trips.

Prior to joining Pennsbury, Scotty served for many years as a driver for a regional trucking company and as a machine operator for the A.E. Staley Manufacturing Company and for IBM.

Scotty raised his family in the Pennsbury School District and now enjoys his clan of children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

He also likes getting to know his student passengers and their family members. “I try and make their ride as pleasant as possible,” he said. “I love the kids,” he said, although he admits the middle school students can be his biggest challenge. “You have to remain as calm as you can,” he said with a smile.
