Who needs a billboard when you have the side of a big yellow bus?
Finding candidates to fill some open bus driver positions was proving difficult for Roane County Schools.
That changed when school officials strung up a hard-to-miss sign on the side of a school bus.
The bus was parked in a high-traffic area near school administration offices at Hwy. 70 and Bluff Road.
“We weren’t getting many responses,” Director of Schools Gary Aytes said.
“Then we parked that bus out there and had 20 applications. It worked.”
