The entire school district of Warren Consolidated Schools saluted him by hosting a ceremony for the community to come out and hear the story of how Dillon saved the day.

Dillon, a humble and quiet-spoken student at Carter Middle School, about 20 miles north of downtown Detroit, sprang into action during a bus ride home from school Wednesday afternoon when he saw that the driver had passed out behind the wheel.

  1. Angels come in the world sizes this kid is truly an angel protecting the driver and the rest of the students on the bus. God bless him

  2. Cause he is a child, who could had been hipnotized by being in the cell but instead he was alert and jump in to action, thanks to him there is no accident where many could have died.

    1. When I mentioned the July 1989 Penthouse pet Tiffany Stevens: I realized that she’s 2 decades younger than Geneva, the yellow school bus driver. I simply judged these 2 women by what’s in their heart: never by outward appearance. You’ll find it hard to believe just how many traffic citations she received. What I respect about Tiffany Stevens is that: she never got into drugs or alcohol. Not even cigarette tobacco. Tiffany Stevens reminded me of just how naughty Paris Hilton was. They’re both somewhat the same. 🚬 🚭 🚬 💉 💊 🍸 🍷 🍸 🚌 😳 😑

  3. Still, I think quite often a lot about Geneva {Geneva Whelchel}, who used to be the Santa Cruz County CA. yellow school bus driver. That’s when she used to be in business back then in 1972. She looks just like the July 1989 Penthouse pet Tiffany Stevens. Geneva may already be 77 years old today. Message, passed over on April 28th, 2023. 🚌 🚏 🚍 🚎 🚐 🚌 🏫 💛 ✨️ 😍 😌 💓 🏫

  4. Bus company or the school should have medical check up to their employees maybe twice a year for this to be prevented from happening at the least, Ang try to encourage their employees to be physically fit.

  5. What a hero!!! This kid not only jumped in to action but he took control and told the kids to call 9-1-1 for the driver. What a great kid !!!
