Norma Bunton was recognized by the Needles Unified School District and the Needles Chamber of Commerce as the Educator of the Year. Dr. McNeil, Superintendent, believes that all District employees are educators in their own way to make a difference for our students.

Norma is a graduate of Needles HS and still plays with students in the local Bluenotes Band. "As a bus driver in the Needles Unified School District, she has made a difference for our students each and every day!"
