Washington Court House City School District Superintendent Dr. Tom Bailey spoke about the Big Blue Bus program.
“This is the fifth year of the program and we’re really excited about it. We have a new vehicle coming on the line which is more like a vendor truck that will be able to house hot and cold food on it, so there will be the capability to keep things hot or cold for longer traveling. We’re very fortunate to partner with Cargill on that as they provided the funding for that particular vehicle. We are also very thankful for McDonald’s of Fayette County and Nick Epifano for supporting this program for the past five years. He’s been very generous with providing us with paper goods, boxes, bags, and all those things that would cost the program a lot of money.”
