It doesn't take long to realize how friendly Darlington County, S.C., school bus driver Bernadine "Bee Bee" Reed is.
Even before a visitor to the school district offices can get into the building, Reed has already introduced herself and started talking to the visitor.
Reed said she's from Baltimore.
"As a little girl, I lived in Dovesville [in Darlington County] for probably a few years, then we moved back up north," Reed said.
In Maryland, she raised four children of her own: two boys and two girls. Her older daughter lives in Darlington and also works as a bus driver. Her younger son is serving in the military in Colorado. Her youngest daughter remains in Maryland, and her oldest son resides in New Jersey.
