School system to hold job fair

Published 4:57 pm Wednesday, April 20, 2016

The Chilton County school system will hold a job fair June 2 for anyone interested in employment with the system.

The Chilton County Board of Education approved Superintendent of Education Tommy Glasscock’s recommendation for the job fair at the Board’s meeting Tuesday.

Glasscock said the fair would be an efficient way to hire to fill any open positions and also help with system needs, such as a shortage of substitute bus drivers.

The fair would be held at Jefferson State Community College. Other details are still to be determined.
