GREENVILLE – Two children of Anderson Coach and Travel employees were recently awarded American Bus Association scholarships. The ABA Foundation chose Hayley Rader and David Alexander III as recipients of the funds to help further their education.
Hayley, 19, is the daughter of Sonny and Missy Rader of Greenville. She attends Rosedale Technical College in Pittsburgh, where she’s studying auto collision repair. She was awarded the $2,500 Peter L. Picknelly Scholarship, which goes to students in transportation-related fields with at least a 3.0 grade-point average whose parents are employed in the motorcoach industry. Mrs. Rader is an Anderson school bus driver for the Reynolds district, and Hayley also spent summer 2018 detailing buses for Anderson.
David Alexander III, whose father is an Anderson bus driver for Conneaut schools, is a two-time awardee of the association’s $5,000 Bus and Tour Operator Scholarship. He also won the award in 2017.
The son of David and Debbie Alexander of Conneaut Lake, he is in his final year of school at Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine in Harrogate, Tenn. Alexander decided to become a large-animal veterinarian after he watched one perform surgery on a cow on his parents dairy farm as a child.
