Lee County schools to host job fair

LEESBURG, Ga. (WALB) - Lee County Schools will be holding a job fair next week to fill quite a few positions, including bus drivers.

The job fair is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 5:30 p.m. at Lee County High School 9th grade campus.

Transportation director, Trey Haynes, says issues of bus driver shortages extend far beyond just Lee County.

“It’s a nationwide driver shortage so we’re always looking for good people to come and fill those routes and COVID concerns have definitely played a part in reducing the number of available drivers,” said Haynes.

Other positions that the school system needs to fill include bus monitors and food service workers.
