Jack Glancy, Darlene Warrum and Robert "Bob" Wilson each received a Distinguished Hoosier certificate during the meal. CCS Director of Personnel, Data and Food Service Carolyn Kumpf presented the certificates.
Each year, CCS Director of Transportation Frank Misner corresponds with Gov. Mitch Daniels' office regarding the certificates.
"We're probably looking at close to 80 years of experience. That's a pretty big hit when you lose 80 years."
Warrum has driven for CCS for 36 years. She also drove a school bus in the Indianapolis area for a handful of years before coming to Clay County.
The Knightsville resident said she'll miss her colleagues and the students most of all.
"I will miss the kids and the people in general," Warrum said. "I'll miss the people I see every day."
Warrum has driven the same route for several years now.
"I have kids of kids I've hauled," she said. "You think, 'Where did the time go?'"
Warrum said she plans to spend more time with her family in the future.
"I'm sure I won't stand still," she said.
Glancy has driven for CCS for approximately seven years.
Prior to that, he drove a school bus for school corporations in Chesterton, Wheeler, Valparaiso and Hobart.
Glancy moved to the area in 2005 to be closer to family. He lives near Carbon in Parke County.
"I will miss associating with the other drivers and the students," Glancy said. "Most of the students are good kids."
There was one thing, however, Glancy said he would not miss.
"I won't miss getting up in zero degree (temperatures) and getting in a cold bus," he said.
The third honored bus driver, Wilson, was not in attendance Tuesday.
