HENRY COUNTY, GA – Five of twenty-one Henry County Schools, special needs Bus Drivers who showed up for work every day won the annual new school bus drawing.

The five lucky drivers are: Don Baldwin, Dudley Dawkins, Gary Bell, Ken Ross, and Virginia Lemons.

New buses were purchased through the state of Georgia’s ‘Bonds for Buses’ program, and the money collected is distributed to local school districts to assist in purchasing new buses.

“We appreciate the drivers who take extra pride in their jobs and make it to work every day,” stated Cliff Shearouse, Henry County Schools Director of Transportation. “They perform a huge service for our kids and they deserve the special recognition. The new bus giveaway is a creative way to reward them.”

The special needs buses take extra time to properly equip for their new purpose, but their delivery will take place before the end of the school year.

Their current buses, depending on their condition, will either rotate to another driver in the fleet or be placed on a reserve fleet status.

Henry County Schools maintains a fleet of 309 buses in order to transport 24,000 kids a day. The transportation department is responsible for ensuring the safe transport of 60 percent of the student population each school year.
