Two former bus drivers have shifted gears to drive and operate snowplow trucks for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
Krisa Walls of Georges Township was looking for a job to bring in a second income into her home when she decided to apply. The stay-at-home mom raised three children over 20 years, and her last job was driving a school bus.
"I wanted something with steady pay and benefits, and I couldn't really find anything around here," Walls said.
Browsing online, she saw the state Department of Transportation was looking for snow plow operators.
