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.
