GREENFIELD, Ill. — A school bus driver for Greenfield Community Unit School District #10 will retire at the end of the school year after 43 years of driving students to and from Greenfield Elementary, KSDK reports.

Doris Hudson was hired by the district in 1969 and has driven her bus about 9,000 miles a year. Greenfield Elementary students and staff honored Hudson at a celebration in the school gymnasium hosted by Superintendent Kevin Bowman, who rode on Hudson’s bus in first grade.

Hudson told the news source that the students on her bus have become her family.

We had a gentleman retire from Oxford Hills School District here in Maine either last June or the one before. He and his wife had bought their OWN school buses to transport kids before it was a school district here. His hire date was September of 1966, when the district was formed. He was a district employee for approximately 44 or 45 years. That is not including the time he drove before the district was formed!
