Tribute to Shayne Pierre
Congressman Steve Daines
Congressional Record: 114th Congress
July 16, 2015
Mr. DAINES. Mr. President, I wish to recognize Shayne Pierre of Polson, MT as Montanan of the Week. This week, Mr. Pierre was given the rare honor of receiving the Colonel's Meritorious Service Award from the Lake County Sheriff's Office and the Montana Highway Patrol for his selfless acts to assist all victims of a drunk driving accident that occurred this past May.
Shayne was riding the school bus home when the accident occurred. A speeding drunk driver caused a collision with the school bus, injuring both Shayne and his fellow students on the bus. Upon noticing a gas leak on the pavement, Shayne quickly instructed all students to exit the bus. He also acted heroically when he ran to help the driver who caused the accident, despite the injuries Shayne himself had sustained.
Shayne's quick actions and selflessness deserve many thanks and for that, I want to recognize him. Through this incident, Shayne acted as a role model not only to the students on the bus, but to his classmates, peers and community. I am proud that he is a citizen of the great State of Montana and an example to all.
