Am I able to work with students?” Decatur City Schools Assistant School Transportation Supervisor Jamie Penley said. “And we get them down here and talk to them and get them to understand a lot of times it’s easier than they think. Also working with other people, and just that community sense I think when they get here they know that it’s truly a family.”
