Lakia Harris Named February 2023 BCIU Employee of the Month


Current position: School Bus Driver and CDL Instructor

Years at BCIU: 16 years

I grew up in: Philadelphia

I now live in: Reading

Education: Lakia – Kia Harris graduated from Pottsgrove High School. 

Family: Kia has been married to Ruben Harris for twenty-three years – her original and favorite school bus driver. She met him when he was working for BCIU.

Outside interests: Mrs. Harris’ favorite place to be is with family and at the farmers’ market. She is addicted to plants and considers herself a plant mom.  Kia says she is “all things earthy.”

Best part of my job:Kia shares that the best part of her job is being the driver of the coolest kids! She affectionately calls them her ‘squad’ and adds that it is a privilege to play a special part in their growth and development to be a piece of their puzzle of life daily. She wears many hats in their yellow Cadillac!

You might not know: Kia used to play guitar and would like to get back to that. And … despite being loud, she actually loves peace and quiet.
