RALEIGH, N.C. — Some students in Wilson, Edgecombe, Pitt and Nash counties will go back to school in August in more environmentally friendly buses.

Six low-emission diesel buses were delivered Wednesday to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The buses were paid for with stimulus money through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

"We are pleased to be able to do our part in helping to make the air healthier for students and grateful to the EPA for sharing the cost of these new, clean diesel buses," State Superintendent June Atkinson said in a statement.
