Class Act: Driving with a purpose
By Ethan Logue,
COTTONDALE, Fla. ( WMBB ) – The number one priority for school bus drivers is the safety of the children.
It’s been on Cottondale High School bus driver Charlotte Brown’s front burner for the last 44 years.
“She’s been driving a school bus for Jackson County for over 40 years, and she gets those students to school back and forth safely and safety is the most important thing about these students,” said Cottondale High School Principal Zanda Warren.
Brown does more than just keep the children safe.
“Well, I try to teach them, you know, right from wrong,” Brown said. “If they do something wrong, I try to explain it to them and try to make a better life for them, you know.”
Brown is as selfless as they come, sacrificing her time for the betterment of the kids.
It’s the nationwide bus drivers shortage that put Brown back behind the wheel.
