East Texas school bus drivers honored for faithful service

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

East Texas school bus drivers are being recognized today for their faithful service to Longview schools.

Today was the year-end bus driver awards at the Longview ISD transportation office.

Awards handed out were for perfect attendance, as well as 5-year and 10-year awards.

Also, a special award was given to Dorothy Brown, who is retiring after driving Longview school buses for 36 years.

"My heart was filled with joy when I found out so many people care. I thought about it long and hard, I thought it was about time," said driver Dorothy Brown, who started driving school buses in 1977.

Ms. Brown says after driving a bus all those years, she has plans to travel in her retirement.
