Colleen Puch retired last week after driving a school bus for 50 years (8 years in Ohio and 42 in Kenai). The 80-year-old is spry and looking forward to fun and retirement and says she loved her kids and the biggest thing she learned from them was respect is a two-way street. Her Supervisor, Neal DuPerron, of First Student Bus Company, says it's going to be hard to replace such an amazing person. Last week they threw Puch a surprise retirement party. All her friends and a lot of former students were there to send her off into her next adventure. If you have a story idea for the Allgood News, email Dave at AllgoodNews@KTUU.com / Dallgood@KTUU.com.
