Each year the Property Casualty Alliance of Texas (PCAT), through Edwards Risk Management, sponsors a School Bus Driver of the Year Award. Drivers are nominated and selected by their peers at Midlothian ISD.
This year the MISD award is presented to Diana Pena. Diana was nominated by fellow driver, Cary Samples. Diana has been with MISD for two years. She came with several years of experience from other districts. Diana is very dedicated to her job, and recently met a 5-year milestone of being cancer free.
Not only a caring bus driver, she is a "cheerleader" for her students. She always shows school spirit, dressing up for campus events.
