These 11 students were recognized at the annual Outstanding AAA Safety Patrol Luncheon that was held on May 4, 2012 in Richmond. Each student received a plaque and will be receiving a $100 Visa Gift Card.

“These students were recognized for their special talents and dedication, used in the service of keeping their fellow students safe on the school grounds and on school buses,” said Ralph Wilcher, manager of safety services for the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education. “Their sacrifices of time and effort given before and after school, on top of their school work and other activities, show a great amount of character and desire. AAA salutes them for this dedication of service to others.”

AAA has served as the sole sponsor of the school safety patrol program nationwide since 1920. Schools throughout Virginia have utilized the program since 1927.
