Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrol Awards honorees

aaaAs the 2017/2018 school year begins its final quarter, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education and AAA Mid-Atlantic honored nine deserving students at this year’s Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrol Awards Luncheon in Richmond.  The Foundation received dozens of applications from schools throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and selected the top nine nominees who excelled in the areas of leadership, dependability, character and academics.  These nine extraordinary students each received a $100 gift card and plaque from the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education.

“Every student involved in AAA’s Safety Patrol program plays a key role in keeping their fellow classmates safe,” stated Haley Glynn, Traffic Safety Community Educator for the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education. “It is an honor to recognize the patrollers that have gone above and beyond the call of duty.  These nine students truly exemplify the leadership skills we look for in great safety patrollers, and I know they are destined to go on to do bigger and better things.”
