A Richmond County school bus driver was honored recently for preventing vehicle break-ins.

During the Richmond County Board of Education's Dec. 14 meeting, Jennifer Vest was recognized for her "vigilance and due diligence" during the Nov. 29 basketball game between Murphey and Hephzibah middle schools, according to a letter from Superintendent Frank Roberson that was read during the meeting.

"According to (Transportation) Director (Jimmy) Wiley, you heard two subjects discussing their plans to break into cars in the parking lot of this game," Roberson wrote. "You immediately contacted officers of School Safety and Security. Based on your information, officers investigate and located the two suspects in the parking lot whereby the suspects fled on foot."

I feel sure Ms. Vest is a wonderful person and bus driver who deserves to be recognized for her diligence and actions. However, in her place, I would have been very mortified by public recognition for simply calling the police on some idiots whose plans I overheard. It's the simple duty of a good citizen. Give the woman a raise and a terrific evaluation instead.

Perhaps there was more to it than this little PSA gives us.
