LPS bus drivers workshop

Lawton_The Lawton Public School needs bus drivers, so they're offering a training workshop in July.  Ten drivers recently quit, some because of long-term medical problems, but the bigger problem is the new ones coming on the job just aren't interested in staying on.

It's a problem LPS Director of Transportation John Corgill says he's seen for a while now.  Even though people need jobs, they're not interested in this one.  "This is my second year and it seems to be a problem we've encountered here for longer than two years," Corgill said.

Classes for the workshop begin July 9th and run through the 14th.   You need to be 21 and have a current and valid Oklahoma driver's license.  

If you are interested, contact the Lawton Public School's transportation center at 248-3255 for more information.
