University of Kansas alumna Jean Kerich has been retired for over nine years, but that doesn’t mean she has retired from her passions.
Kerich still serves as a bus driver for the University of Kansas’s track and cross country teams. Kerich, a former high school track coach, clocks in six days a week, year round.
Despite the early mornings, late nights and weekends, Kerich saaid she loves the sport.
“To me, it was a no-brainer. I was just really happy to have the opportunity,” Kerich said. “It’s never a burden. It’s too much fun to be a burden.”
Kerich and her husband Pat also work as year-round officials at University of Kansas home track meets.
