School Bus Company Ready to Move Forward

Lakeshore’s Sarah Holst attended the bus service’s meeting tonight with school patrons, talking with Jamal Washington, Director of Community Relations for Illinois Central, the company that contracts with Gary School Corporation to run the school buses, prior to the meeting about the scenario for this school year.
