A Cobb County School District bus mechanic is once again proving he knows what it takes to keep the district’s school buses in top shape.
Transportation fleet technician Jeremiah Bradberry won the Metro RESA (Regional Education Service Agency) Technician Competition conducted by the Georgia Association for Pupil Transportation.
He will now compete in the state competition in June. It is a position he knows well because three years ago he won at the state level and went on to compete nationally, where he ranked in the top 10 in the country. In 2014, Bradberry had to complete a written exam and a number of diagnostic challenges to earn the title of Georgia’s top school bus technician.
CCSD mechanic Tony Moon may get a wild card for placing 6th in the Metro RESA competition.
