HARRISONVILLE, Mo. — The city’s mayor and a school district official recently toured Durham School Services’ local transportation facility.

Throughout the tour, Mayor Brian Hasek and Harrisonville Schools Assistant Superintendent Jason Eggers saw firsthand the efforts of Durham to fulfill their mission of getting students to school safely and on time.

Durham also highlighted their use of technology.

“My visit was very educational and informative,” Hasek said. “I was impressed with Durham’s dedication to safety. Every aspect of the tour enlightened me about all the work that goes into getting our students to school safely.”
