“I am Hamilton” spotlights the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers, and community members in providing opportunities for children in the classrooms of Hamilton County Schools.
On Friday, “I am Hamilton” spotlights John Shackleford, a contract school bus driver for Hamilton County Schools.
Mr. Shackleford started driving a bus in 1993 and drove until 2004. He came back to driving about two years ago because he wanted to make a difference for children at Woodmore Elementary.
“It is a lot of fun,” Mr. Shackleford said. “I enjoy the kids, and I try to make it safe for them and try to make it fun.”
