Georgia Masterson speaks to USD 257 Board of Education members at a meeting Monday. Masterson, representing Humanity House, was concerned about removal of a bus stop on Eisenhower Drive, a low-income neighborhood.

Representatives of Humanity House asked USD 257 board members to restore bus services to low-income students who live on Eisenhower Drive.

Georgia Masterson spoke to the board on behalf of Humanity House’s clients who live on the street. The district provided bus service to the neighborhood last year but is not doing so this year.

Four families are affected, Masterson said, that do not have reliable transportation. Humanity House volunteers have been transporting the children to and from school, but do not have room for a middle school and a high school student.
