Renita Smith is a school bus driver in Maryland and on one evening in September 2016 something horrific happened. She was on her daily route dropping off the school children when she noticed the brake hazard light flashing on the dashboard. Before she could figure out what was wrong, she noticed smoke coming from the back and within seconds the bus caught fire. Renita was quick on her feet and managed to save all the children without thinking about her own safety. Ellen could not accept that Renita was living from paycheck to paycheck so she decided to do something special for her.
