Driving forward: electric school buses inspire art
School buses producing zero emissions were once a dream, but Cummins and Blue Bird are now powering zero-emission student transportation for districts nationwide.
With more than 100 battery electric school buses that have been delivered throughout the country, school districts continue to invest in their communities, despite the unprecedented challenges they face during a global pandemic.
But with challenges, come new opportunities. Opportunities to dream big and dream of an even better tomorrow. And who better to dream big than kids?
When the school year started to look different this past fall, Cummins encouraged parents to share their kids’ dreams for the future via social media. From aspiring to be an astronaut, teacher and video game maker, to seeing the oceans and discovering new fish, to “making music that brings people together,” to working for world peace, there was no shortage of big dreams.
And with caretakers, explorers, creators, lifelong learners and simple kindness – the road ahead appears very bright.
Cummins then commissioned artwork to help bring these dreams to life. The mural was donated to a school district in California. The art will be used to help inspire students when they return for in-person learning.
"Education provides the platform for success”, said Brian Wilson, general manager of electrified components at Cummins. “Our company was founded on innovation. We have the best and brightest minds creating solutions that power a more prosperous world. We’re proud to support our communities and hope that this art will inspire students to dream big, innovate, and work hard towards their dreams."
The future looks bright when we unleash the power to dream big and embrace the opportunity that each tomorrow brings.
So, what do your dreams look like?
