TOPEKA — School transportation employees play an important role in the safety of Kansas children – so to help honor their dedication and expertise, Gov. Laura Kelly designated Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2021, as School Transportation Appreciation Day.
In Kansas, there were 4,366 school bus drivers during the 2020-2021 school year who transported 188,848 students more than 23 million miles.
“School transportation employees play an important role in the safety of our students,” said Keith Dreiling, director of the Kansas State Department of Education’s School Bus Safety Unit. “There is a critical shortage of school bus drivers, not only in Kansas, but across the nation. We just don’t have enough school bus drivers to fill the need. We are asking community members to consider driving a school bus if they can, and I want to encourage the state of Kansas to help celebrate the men and women who currently sit behind the wheel of our buses and dedicate their time and talent to keeping our students safe.”
School Transportation Appreciation Day falls within National School Bus Safety Week, which is Oct. 18-22. National School Bus Safety Week takes place the third full week of October each year. It is designated to promote school bus safety.
Troy dropped its third game in a row, losing in Winchester to JCN by a score of 22-12. The Trojans will host Horton on Senior Night this coming Friday in the final regular season contest. Troy will travel in week 9 to an opponent to be determined.

TMS Football wins over Frankfort 50-0 and finishes the season undefeated and league champs. Congratulations
The Middle School Troy Trojans football team hosted the Frankfort Wildcats for the final game of the season. Both teams were undefeated, and the game was for the Oregon Trail League Championship.
Marcus McKittrick (OL) started the game with an impressive kick return for a touchdown. That was the catalyst for a Trojan offense that tallied fifty points. Kaston Jasper (QB) scored his first rushing touchdown of the season.
The defense, led by Henry Geiger (LB) and Tucker Jarrett (LB), tackled well all night, rarely allowing the Wildcats to move the first down markers.
The final score was 50-0 in favor of Troy, improving their record to 6-0. This season marks the first Oregon Trail League Championship for the middle school Trojans, and the first time since 2012 the middle school team has gone undefeated.
Thank you to all the fans who supported us all year. This is an excellent group of kids, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.

The Troy Lady Trojans finished their volleyball season Thursday night against Frankfort. The Trojans entered the night seeking redemption against the Wildcats who came away from the League tournament as Champions over the weekend. The Trojans had a slow start in the first match falling behind by 10 points, but were able to regroup during a timeout to rally together and take back the lead. Harper Whetstine, Alyson Grable, and Cadence Popple were strong at the net making key plays to overcome the deficit and take the first set 25-23. During the second match the Trojans again displayed a slow start but were able to maintain positive attitudes and utilize teamwork during crucial points to put them in front. Nicole Judd, Braelyn Popple, and Kennadee Christopher displayed solid defense returning hard hits from the Wildcats to lead their team to a second win 25-21. The perseverance and determination shown by the Lady Trojans during these matches illustrated how far this team has come this season and the 8th graders will be exciting to watch as they transition to the High School team next year. The Lady Trojans would like to thank the school, their parents, and the community for their support this season!
