“I now know why the PROFESSIONAL INSTRUCTOR IN DRIVER EDUCATION PROGRAM is a critical element in delivering our safety message. We arrived as a caterpillar, spun a little cocoon and by Friday we had developed wings. Our vision is now endless…our view has no limits…and our heights are only restricted by self limitations. The P.R.I.D.E. Team assembled is just an A-1 Class Act. When associated with this team, you just know you want to be successful and that you will succeed.” — John Piron, First Student
