Olemuel spent most of his work time on the road. For twenty-nine years he was a driver and travel aide for Grambling State University. He drove collegiate and high school students, visiting dignitaries, and the President of Grambling State University. Making sure that we all were delivered safely; and with a few laughs and memories along the way.
