BOHANNON NAMED AUGUST 2nd MILE AWARD WINNER

Gordon County Schools announces its first 2nd Mile Award winner of the 2019-2020 school year from the district’s transportation department.  Mr. Bryan “Bo” Bohannon was surprised with the announcement on Friday morning by GCS Superintendent, Dr. Kimberly Fraker, along with Lee Rushing, Gordon County Bus Shop Foreman. 

Mr. Bohannon has been a mechanic in the Gordon County Schools’ transportation department since 2006.  The nominations received for Mr. Bohannon illustrated his willingness to assist coworkers with a positive attitude.  “(Bo) always has a smile on his face and a word of encouragement every time you see or talk to him,” stated Dana Brown, GCS bus driver.  When asked about Mr. Bohannon’s impact on keeping busses in good working order, Lee Rushing, Gordon County’s Bus Shop Foreman, stated, “Bo has been an integral part of our daily operations, from monthly inspections to our repairs for our school bus fleet and service fleet.  He also helps out with other bus duties when the need occurs.  A very reliable employee, Bo has been a mechanic/technician for most of his life, having worked with his father doing automotive repairs in their shop for many years.  It has been my pleasure working with Bo all these years, and he is very deserving of the 2nd Mile Award.”

Mr. Bohannon will be honored by the Board of Education on Monday, September 9, where he will receive a gift sponsored by Longhorn Steakhouse of Calhoun.  Pictured below with GCS Superintendent, Dr. Kimberly Fraker, are members of the transportation maintenance department (L-R): Rickey Young, Tim Defoor, Byran “Bo” Bohannon, Dr. Fraker, Devon Cantrell, and Shop Foreman- Lee Rushing.

Thank you to Mr. Bohannon for going the 2nd Mile for our students! #GCS2ndMile #GETGCS
