In an exciting development for Plymouth Community School Corporation, Ted Brown, who has successfully served as the Director of Safety for the past eight years, has been appointed as the Director of Transportation, effective immediately. This announcement follows Tuesday’s unanimous approval by the School Board.

Brown is a proud Plymouth High School graduate from the class of 1987. Following graduation, he went on to receive his bachelor’s in criminology from Purdue University. Brown then served as a Plymouth Police Officer for 21 years, from 1994 until 2015, when he took on the role of Director of Safety here at PCSC.

As the newly appointed Director of Transportation, Brown will leverage his extensive knowledge and collaboration skills to oversee the transportation of our students, fostering a culture of safety and efficiency. With his unparalleled commitment to student well-being and the Plymouth community at large, we are confident that he will excel in this new opportunity.

“Many people have asked me why I would make this transition. My answer is, it was time for a new challenge for me. I loved being the Director of Safety, but after 8 years, I was ready to try something new,” Brown shared in an interview.

The Director of Transportation oversees the safe and efficient transportation of our students, ensures the maintenance and readiness of all vehicles, assists in driver recruitment and training, and collaborates with various stakeholders to maintain a well-functioning transportation program. “The most important thing in transportation is to safely transport students to and from school or extracurricular activities. We have many great drivers to help us achieve this,” Brown stated. “There are many layers to being the Director of Transportation. I am very fortunate to have two great employees working with me to help teach me along the way.”

Superintendent Mitch Mawhorter said, “We are confident in Brown’s ability to play a vital role in upholding our commitment to student safety, as demonstrated by his dedication to his previous role and providing reliable transportation services. We extend our well wishes as he transitions to this new role, eagerly anticipating the ways in which he will further enhance the lives of our students and community. Please join us in welcoming Ted Brown to our team in this new capacity.”
