KENNEWICK, Wash. - One bus driver acted when he saw a student in need on Thursday on his bus route in Kennewick, Washington.
A student was crying when he boarded John Lunceford's school bus. Lunceford noticed how red the student's exposed hands and ears were after he'd waited for the bus in the freezing temperatures that morning. "I put my gloves on him and told him it'll be OK, it'll be OK," said Lunceford, a U.S. Army veteran in his third year driving buses for Kennewick School District.
According to the Facebook post, after dropping his bus full of students at school, Lunceford headed to the local dollar store. He bought ten stocking hats and ten sets of gloves, in black and pink, and headed back to the school. He didn't know the student's name so he had an administrator help track him down. They found the boy in the library with his class and Lunceford handed a hat and pair of gloves to him.
