Bus Parade to Honor Slain Pasco Bus Driver Happening Sat, Oct 9
The Pasco School District has announced the event, and the route it will take.
This Saturday, beginning at 10 AM, a parade will be held in honor of 72-year-old Pasco School District bus driver Richard Lenhart. He was fatally stabbed near Longfellow Elementary School by 34-year-old Joshua Dian Davis of Richland on Friday, Sept. 24th.
Davis reportedly had asked for a ride to the Road 100 area before stabbing Lenhart multiple times.
He remains in the Franklin County Jail.
Pasco Schools Public Information Officer Shane Edinger said the parade will begin near 10th and Lewis, down 10th past Longfellow, then turn right onto Sylvester. They will then:
"From there, the parade will continue along 1st Avenue until it turns into Court Street and then intersects with 4th Avenue. The buses will then turn right onto 4th Avenue and proceed north to the PSD Bus Garage on Stearman Avenue."
All the buses will carry the number "4" which was the latest route Lenhart drove for the District.
The public is invited to attend and watch the event. Buses from Kennewick and Richland and other area Districts are expected to also participate.
