The pandemic is causing bus driver shortages across the Tri-State. On that note, who is looking for the opportunity to get behind the wheel?

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Cooperation hosted a Bus Driver Career Fair to solve this issue. No experience needed, flexible schedule, full-time benefits, AND paid training? You can't beat that.

"We will actually pay for your training, our driving instructors work with you, and prepare you for the testing that takes place in Indiana, you'll be paid during that time," says Jason Woebkenberg, EVSC Chief Communication Officer.

The event? Successful. Attracting many looking for a new opportunity, just like Craig Philips

"That's the main reason why I'm here, the benefits and the opportunity," says Phillips. He says his children are currently in school, and he would love to drive their bus.

The school district let those who enjoyed the ride apply for the position right on the spot. Officials say the position offers full-time benefits for part-time hours as well.

EVSC will host another recruitment event on May 14 at Harrison High School. Those interested will have the chance to speak with bus transportation officials to answer any questions they may have.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
