Smith donates sunglasses to bus drivers

Express Staff Writer

Smith Sport Optics in Ketchum will donate sunglasses to school bus drivers to help them see better during hazardous weather conditions, the Blaine County School District reported Wednesday in a news release.

Following a period of blowing snow, bad light and glare, school board Chairwoman Alexandra Sundali contacted the company to see if discounts might be offered on sunglasses for the district's bus drivers.

"Smith took it a step further and has agreed to donate a pair of their interchangeable lens sunglasses, with of course, the lenses specifically designed for flat light, to each of the district's 30 drivers," the news release states.

"The school district is incredibly grateful to Smith Optics for their terrific act of generosity, and is pleased that their valuable bus drivers will be better able to see through the treacherous winter conditions we so often experience in our valley."
