Lori Truex tells the Battle Creek Enquirer she’ll end her fundraising campaign Thursday to return to work as a school bus driver. She says she raised more than $10,000 — $5,400 from an online GoFundMe account and $4,800 from her panhandling or checks deposited by donors into a credit union account she opened for the drive.

Truex says grants, scholarships and loans will help make up the difference.
She began standing with a sign on corners around the city on June 14.
Her daughter, Kendall Truex, moved into her MSU dormitory on Thursday. Classes start Wednesday.
