Lamar County schools seeking bus drivers
PURVIS, Miss. (AP) — The Lamar County School District is seeking new bus drivers.
WDAM-TV reports the district has 164 school buses that cover 124 routes to pick up and drop off students across the county. Officials say they need seven to eight new drivers.
The district’s transportation director, Pat Kribbs, says potential drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a commercial driver’s license with designators “P″ for passengers and “S″ for school bus.
Kribbs says the ideal candidate “loves kids, is patient and firm.”
