Tom Short teaches Matt Evans to drive a bus

On Saturday, Nov. 6, Marietta City Schools held a job fair seeking bus drivers inviting our community to “Get Behind the Wheel.” 

It was a great success! We would like to thank the following people and businesses who donated their time or facilities for this event:

• Russ Cogswell of Apex True Value.

• Christine Maxon of Go Mart on Pike Street.

• Marietta Mayor Josh Schlicher.

• Tim Myers of East of Chicago Pizza.

• Matt Evans of Peoples Bank.

• Charleton Brown, Marietta City Schools Transportation Coordinator/School Bus Driver.

• Rick Beaver, Marietta City Schools Bus Driver.

• Tom Short, Marietta City Schools Bus Driver.

• Janelle Patterson, Marietta City Schools Director of Media and Communications.

As many know, there is a serious shortage of bus drivers in Ohio.  Anyone interested in applying for a driver position with Marietta City Schools may contact me at 740-374-6525 ext. 3 for additional information.

Again, a big thank you to all of the people above for their help and time!
