Meet Jermaine Bethea, school bus driver

Jermaine Bethea lives in Tempe, Arizona. Before accepting a new job at Valley Metro, the regional public transportation system, he drove a school bus for Curry Elementary School. Even though he isn't driving kids anymore, he still remembers all their names, so he decided to go the extra mile. He organized a book drive with his co-workers at Valley Metro, which took the photo below. At the end of the school year, he arrived at school in a bus packed with 2,100 books -- enough that every child on every bus route at the school can take home a new adventure in summer reading. Curry Principal Kenneth White said, "This is just another shining example of what public schools are out there doing for our kids."
