On the first day of school, August 24, Dr. Janet Wilson, Superintendent of Garrett County Public Schools, rode Bus #46 with driver Mr. Mike Vansickle and several students on the northern end of the county. The route started on Pud Miller Road, and continued making several bus stops, including Fish Hatchery Road, Bowman Hill Road, Rabbit Hollow, and Collier Road, before dropping students off at Northern High and Northern Middle Schools.  The bus continued making stops on Garrett Highway and Aiken Miller Road before dropping off students at Accident Elementary. 
 
Dr. Wilson indicated, “It was a pleasure to ride a school bus on the first day of school.  The excitement of the first day shows on all of the students’ faces as they greet their bus driver for the new year.  I appreciate Mr. Warren Glotfelty, contractor, and Mr. Mike VanSickle, driver, for the opportunity as I was afforded the opportunity to see some parts of lovely Garrett County I had not seen.  It is a large county!”
