  • RFamily: Joyce "Betty Lou" Brown, Transportation

    Posted by Greg Dorazio on 10/20/2017 9:00:00 AM

    Her name is Joyce Brown, but to her friends and RFamily, she’s Betty Lou...and she drives Bus 78 with her heart.

    Her routes take her through Church Hill, as she safely transports students to and from George Mason Elementary, Martin Luther King Jr. Middle, and Armstrong High (and she also drives the City Hall shuttle bus to and from Richmond Alternative School for downtown employees).

    “I try to learn my kids, and be able to read them,” Brown said. “I don’t give many write-ups. I try to get with the parents...Sending them to the principal is only a last resort.”
