HILLSVILLE — Busing middle school children from Cana to Hillsville would be similar to Carroll County sports teams riding to play away games in Franklin County, said one speaker at the second public hearing on the grade structure at St. Paul.
The difference is that Cana students would have to take the bus to Hillsville every day, not to the occasional away game, said Mark Beck, one of the 12 speakers who attended a Carroll County School Board public hearing on Nov. 13.
