Sometimes situations arise that require swift action with little time to think. It is during these moments that a person's strength of character comes through. While riding the bus on his way home from school, Union Academy 8th grader Dakota Holland found himself in one of those very situations.
Macon County Schools bus driver Angie McGuire said she was traveling up Rose Creek nearing the end of her bus route when an abrupt stop sent a kindergartner named Makayla into the floor. Upon hearing her crying, Dakota left his seat in the front of the bus to check on her. After reaching her, Dakota noticed that Makayla was bleeding from her head.
