Local man honored for 57 years with Greyhound

Written by

BANGOR - A local man has been honored for his nearly six decades of hard work in the transportation industry.


Since the age of 17, Jerome Hogan has worked for Vermont Transit, now the Greyhound bus terminal, in Bangor, loading the suitcases and bags of those making long bus trips to and from Bangor.


To show their gratitude, Greyhound officials presented Hogan a certificate of appreciation for his 57 years of service.


"I had a lot of fun doing it. I met a lot of drivers, a lot of employees, that's been around Boston, New York and wherever. Now I couldn't be any happier for me," he said.


Hogan has worked at the same job through 11 presidential administrations and has seen decades of change. He said his goal is to make it to 60 years of service before he retires.
