Superintendent Gene Moore hopped on a school bus Monday afternoon outside Indian Land Elementary, joining students as they wound up another day.
It’s a routine he has enjoyed over the years, two or three times a semester, and he doesn’t have many more rides left before he retires in July.
The students seldom know who he is at first.
“Are you the mayor,” one asked him Monday, standing in line before boarding.
“No,” he said, laughing.
