Durham School Services Receives Safety Award

Durham School Services, the company responsible for transporting Topeka Public Schools’ students to and from school every day, has received a Golden Merit Award from the National School Transportation Association (NSTA). The NSTA gives only...
ten such awards each year, and Topeka’s Durham office received theirs for “Top Customer Service Center.”
In addition to receiving this award, Durham of Topeka is proud to announce that they are now in their longest stretch- 158 days- of accident-free transportation. This feat could not be accomplished without the combined efforts of everyone at the Durham Topeka branch. Larry Robbins, Deputy Superintendent of Operations at Topeka Public Schools said, “The entire team at Durham’s Topeka Customer Service Center is focused on the safety of the students they transport and on being a good community partner.”
In addition to their hard work on the job, the Durham Topeka team also gives back to the community in which they work and live. One of the many examples of their work in the community is their support of the Governor’s Easter Egg Hunt. The team has participated in this event for the past nine years by donating volunteers and transportation services to transport Topeka residents to the Governor’s mansion for the event.  Congratulations on this honor, Durham!
