Driving Education

Charleston County School District in partnership with CCSD’s Transportation Services and First Student, Inc. celebrate and appreciate bus drivers every day. Three individuals, who have a total of almost 100 years of service to students between them, are recognized for exceeding safety expectations.


Demetrica George (Mount Pleasant route), Sandra Brantley (North Charleston route) and Jackie Washington (Johns Island route) achieved a five-star rating for safety with First Student, Inc.


“Our entire team puts student safety first,” said Reese. “These three women are not only some of our top drivers but are compassionate and truly have a heart for children. You really have to care for children in this industry. If you don’t, you’re in the wrong business.”


The students and the families appreciate George and have developed tight bonds with each other. So much so that if she ever has to take a day off, George hears about it from the students.
