INDEPENDENCE — Parents in the Mount Rogers community have challenged Grayson County School Board members to put themselves in their children's shoes and see just how fun a bus ride from Mount Rogers to Independence really is.
Sherry Perry, a teacher in the county, came to the board during its regular meeting earlier this month as a parent, instead of an educator.
Perry had four points to discuss, one of which was that she was personally concerned about the amount of time her children had to spend on the school buses each day.
