On Wednesday, August 29th, Drive Smart’s Signs for Life Mobile Classroom was unveiled in Harrison School District 2. Mayor Steve Bach’s wife Suzi cut the ceremonial ribbon. The refurbished bus, bought at an auction for $4500, will be a valuable tool, teaching students what traffic signs and pavement markings mean. This solar-powered mobile classroom will help educate the 42,000 student elementary school population in Colorado Springs in a fun and interactive environment. City of Colorado Springs Brian Shevock, who is in charge of School Safety along with a team of tireless volunteers, donated their time and expertise to make this dream a reality, completing the refurbishment of the bus in a little under five months. The project was made possible through a grant received by Drive Smart, from the Colorado Department of Transportation. Other sponsors kicked in paint and supplies for the bus. The mobile classroom will soon be visiting other regional school districts, after completing a pilot program phase in Harrison School District 2.
