The Palm Beach County School District is holding a special ceremony Friday morning in memory of a bus driver who was brutally killed at her home in November.

Gloria Riley, who was a Palm Beach County school bus driver for 14 years, spent a lot of time between morning and afternoon bus routes in the driver's lounge at the county's central transportation facility.

That lounge is being dedicated in her honor at Friday's ceremony.

Family, friends and coworkers will gather as Superintendent Robert Avossa speaks about Riley's life and service to the school system.  Also, a group of choir students from a school on her route are scheduled to sing at the ceremony.

The dedication starts at 10 a.m. at the Central Transportation facility.

A suspect has been arrested in connection with Riley's death.
