"My son said I couldn't pass the test," Della Hick- man, new PT bus driver said. "He drove a Vo-Tech bus a short time and thought the kids would bother me." However, the mother of a grown son, says she has had no major discipline prob- lems. She feels she can handle the job quite easily. Her interest in driving a school bus came as a result of the need here in Perkins. "I had thought about it before. It's hard to find drivers," Della Hickman commented. So she took the test and did real well on it. "I had kept up on the laws of the road," she added. The job would help her and the school. "I try to be very careful. We do have a few blind intersections." The second driver to be hired this year was Sharon Cheatham. Husband Bob will act as her stand-in. The Cheathams have a four year old daughter, Amy, and a seven year old son, Phillip. The young mother drove a dump truck for a couple of years. She also substitutes for Larry Hall, driving his sanitation truck along with acting as his bookkeeper. Bob is employed with the National Standard Mfg. Co. in Stillwater. Sharon said the most difficult thing to get accus- tomed to is the length of the bus. "It takes awhile to get the feel of any vehicle," she volunteered. It also requires the youngsters and herself "getting used to one another," the pleasant young woman said. "So far we've gotten along OK." The new bus drivers vary in age and experience. However, each has a Della Lavern Hickman, by her bus, has a grown son who thought she couldn't pass the test. She showed him/ congenial manner. Tina Harris, who proudly admits being a grandmother, drove all last year when they added another bus to the route. The Harris family came here from California. "At first it feels like you're moving a building. I'd never driven anything bigger than a pickup, but after awhile its just like driving anything else," Mrs. Harris stated. Mrs. Hickman said she had had no particular problems. She spoke of the necessary caution. "After I have stopped and turned off the red flashing lights (if its a passing zone) its perfectly legal for motorists to proceed Sharon Cheatham in her "Elvis" T-Shirt looks as if she might be a highschool student. with caution. I do not turn off the lights until all the children are clear of the road." "I don't anticipate any problems since the roads are in fair shape, but 1 go a little early if necessary," Mrs. Hickman continued. Mrs. Cheatham also showed concern for the safety of children. She has all the highway route on 177 to Stillwater district as well as some roads east and west off the State Highway. "Occasionally people driv- ing toward the bus don't stop. If the traffic comes up from behind, they are better to stop. I put the flashing Driving for first time last year is Tina Harris. She is a grandmother and this is her first job driving a bus. orange warning lights on quite awhile before stopping. The red lighls flash only when we are slopped." Sharon said. Each lady driver showed a genuine respect for their responsibility. They were concerned that drivers heed the warnings and be prepared to stop. They also agreed their good mechanic Marvin Boyer. helps to give them confidence. Sharon Cheatham said people still look at a woman bus driver and either point or make a noticable comment. However, she said it isn't as obvious as it was when she started driving the dump truck two years ago. i i i PUBLIC 00AUCTION 105 Cimarron South--Perkins, Okla.
