Kisha Collom of Tremonton spends most days behind the wheel of this big yellow school bus, delivering Garland Elementary School students to and from the classroom.  It’s a job she describes as “perfect!”

    Editor’s note:  Everyone has a story to tell.  The Leader wants to tell those stories through this monthly feature titled “Bios of Bear River.”  Each month we will feature a Valley resident chosen randomly from the phone book.  We hope you enjoy reading about your friends and neighbors – and be ready, yours might be the next number we call.

Kisha Collom loves her job.  The Tremonton woman is a school bus driver for the Box Elder School District and transports students to and from Garland Elementary School.  She’s been a bus chauffer for about 12 years and says she can’t remember one discouraging day.
She came by the bus driver role a little reluctantly, however.  She was a contented stay-at-home mom with four children to tend, when her husband, Ricky, came home from work with some prophetic insight.  He told her that La-Z-Boy, where he was employed, could be facing some hard times ahead and she may need to get a job, just in case.
She followed his advice.  Then La-Z-Boy shut down and Ricky lost his job.  It wasn’t long before he was hired at West Liberty Foods, but her bus-driving route helped the family meet expenses.  She has been behind the wheel ever since.
“It’s the perfect job,” she said, of her part-time, five hour a day drive.  “Those kids are my kids and every day is an experience.  I would write a book, if I could.”
