In Honor of Timothy McManus

A much-loved UCPS bus driver was killed in an accident involving a school bus and a garbage truck Monday afternoon in Union County. Officials have identified the bus driver killed as Timothy McManus of Indian Trail. Mr. McManus faithfully drove bus 334 for New Town Elementary and CATA. The accident occurred on New Town Road and Waxhaw-Indian Trail Road in Wesley Chapel.

Please contribute to this fund to honor his service and dedication to our children and to help his family with funeral and other expenses. All proceeds will be given directly to the family.

Tim was survived by two young daughters and an adult daughter.   His girls attend Sun Valley schools.

Disclaimer: My name is Kim Hillegas and I started this fund because  of the incredible outpouring of love, support and desire to help that I saw our community express on FB. Mr. Tim drove my daughter's bus for part of last year, and this tragedy occurred a few hundred yards from my home. All of the proceeds from this campaign will go directly to his daughters.
