Donna Minkel, a mother of four and grandmother of eight, is preparing to retire after 30 years driving an Ojai Unified School District (OUSD) bus.
“It started out as a job and it turned into a career,” said Minkel, who will continue working until summer school ends July 19.
The OUSD School Board thanked Minkel for her service during its June 7 meeting.
