When Lois Yukna was a school bus driver in Middlesex County, N.J., her job was to take students to school. But as a school attendance officer, it’s to make sure they stay there. If you meet Lois even briefly, you’ll understand within a couple minutes that given her passion for students and providing them with every opportunity to learn, she’s perfect for the job.
Lois spent decades as a school bus driver, eventually becoming a driver/trainer/safety coordinator. Now, as attendance officer in the Woodbridge Township School District, she works closely with students, parents, and the courts when students aren’t in school regularly. She was primed for the position by her years behind the wheel and experience with the county’s Juvenile Conference Committee. The citizen panel hears cases involving juvenile offenders. Lois offered to serve when the Middlesex County Education Association asked for volunteers. Learn more
