A beloved Bossier school bus driver was showered with blessings Friday by the three schools on her route.
Robin Alderman drives for Princeton, Platt and T.L. Rodes elementary schools. She is in limbo right now, after her husband died over the summer.
Glen Alderman was the long-time pastor of Belle Park Baptist Church in Haughton, and the couple lived in the church parsonage. Once a new pastor is chosen, Robin will have to move.
That is how the Alderman house came about. Church and community members came together to buy land to build her a house. The concrete slab was poured a month ago, but funding has since run out.
The three schools sprung into action, hosting a jeans day fundraiser. Princeton also held a sock hop and dedicated all the proceeds to the Alderman house.
Today, Alderman was moved to tears when they presented her with a check for $4,380 to help buy the frame for her new home. Later this month, the three schools will engage in a friendly competition of "penny wars" to further help.
