Congratulations to Dean Mozena of Kimball who has been named Minnesota V.F.W. School Bus Driver of the year for 2020.
Mozena is retiring this year, at age 83, after driving school bus for 62 years (the best anyone can figure). In normal times, there would have been much celebration on the bus, and a big end-of-year party. But, alas, Mozena’s retirement comes during a world-wide pandemic and after months of students distance-learning from home. The June award ceremony in Minneapolis is on hold.
Nonetheless, we are all grateful for Mozena’s many years of safely and successfully transporting hundreds of Kimball Schools students!
As rare as this honor is, Elmer Haag of Eden Valley was named 2018 School Bus Driver of the Year after driving school bus in Eden Valley for more than 50 years.
