An incredibly conscientious driver, Richard “Dick” Saunders worked as a loyal employee of the Grinnell Newburg Community School District for more than 48 years. He maintained a clean driving record throughout this time while he transported Grinnell’s youngest generations to and from school and events. Admired by children and faculty alike, Saunders garnered recognition and praise from the school system several times over the course of his tenure. The Grinnell native has since retired, but remains in the area and still looks both ways before crossing.
