Simpson University will be sporting a new custom-wrapped motor coach athletics bus to transport its athletes.
Signarama, Redding’s locally owned and operated business, partnered with the university to create the one-of-a-kind bus, complete with a bigger-than-life Red Hawks logo, on campus for the first time. Signarama Redding, said, “We wanted to partner with Simpson University on this project due to the university’s significant and positive impact in our local community.”
The bus was fully wrapped in 3M vinyl and window film by Signarama’s certified installation technicians and was completed in three days. This was the first fully wrapped bus that the local company has done.
CrossPointe Community Church in Redding donated the bus to Simpson University, after learning that the Simpson athletic teams were using an old bus that made transportation a challenge. Pastor George Nite offered the university a bus that his church was no longer using.
The university received a second bus donated by Ron and Debbie Stickney of Redding and is raising funds to have it wrapped.
The bus will transport athletic teams to their nearly 100 games per year spanning from Mexico to Canada.
