Veteran school bus operator Riley Williams has been honored posthumously as School Bus Fleet’s 2015 Contractor of the Year.

Williams, who was the president and owner of Woodstown, New Jersey-based school bus contracting company B.R. Williams Inc., died in June.

Carol Williams, Riley’s wife, and Chloe Williams, their daughter, accepted the award on his behalf at the National School Transportation Association (NSTA)’s awards ceremony in Minneapolis on Tuesday night.

In presenting the award, SBF General Manager James Blue pointed to Williams’ “passion for transporting students and for giving back to the community. He started in the business in 1975 with little knowledge about school buses, but he quickly learned the ropes and showed that he was dedicated to the safety of the students. He worked hard to build strong relationships with schools and to earn the trust of the community.”

Williams, who died in June, demonstrated a passion for safely transporting students and for giving back to the community.

B.R. Williams Inc. Awarded Grant

New Jersey contractor B.R. Williams Inc. has been awarded a $50,000 grant for Zonar hardware.

The grant is a partnership between the National School Transportation Association (NSTA) and Zonar. Bill Brinton, executive vice president at Zonar, presented the grant at NSTA’s Midwinter Meeting in San Diego on Monday.

B.R. Williams, which is based in Woodstown, New Jersey, will use the funds to outfit school buses with the component hardware needed to use Zonar’s technology systems.

The grant was exclusive to NSTA private school bus contracting members.

“We are excited to again partner with Zonar on this grant opportunity and are pleased that this opportunity helps one of our member contractors,” NSTA President Tim Flood said. “This opportunity affords members access to valuable tools to improve operations and keep them at the forefront of the industry’s best practices.”

During the NSTA Midwinter Meeting, members convene for legislative updates, committee meetings and other association business.

“We welcome you to San Diego and to the beginning of NSTA’s 51st year as an association,” Flood said in kicking off the event Monday morning. “We thank you for your service to our association and to our industry.”
