CONGRATS TO OUR WINNER!
I would like to nominate Mr. Dwight Miller. Mr. Miller is our local special needs bus driver. He has been transporting children in our district with love and care for most of their lives. Parents know their children who are cognitively and physically challenged and medically fragile are given respect and friendship every single trip to and from school. He sings with the kids, he knows everything about them and their families. He has taken the time to do those little extras that endear him to all of us. He has been known to shovel snow away from the bus in a driveway so a wheelchair can get back into the house. He makes connections with children that find it difficult to connect. He becomes a father figure to a young adult with anger issues, letting him know it's okay and he has his back, that he likes him just the way he is. He is a wonderful, spiritual soul and amazingly giving. He not only took our high school students on weekly social / community outings but got right in helping the staff with activities. Mr. Miller has showed disabled young adults real life skills like landscaping and guided them as they tried new things. When he isn't driving the bus he is running a friendship ministries program for special needs children of all denominations within our community. He has been a Big Brother for our local Big Brothers Big Sisters agency for many years. If anyone needs him, he is there, no questions asked. I personally am a better person for having him in my life. the parents, staff and children of those his life has touched feel the same. I can not think of anyone more worthy of this honor because Mr. Miller (Dwight) emulates Mr. Rogers every day. He likes everyone just as they are. He truly is the best a neighbor can be!
