DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – AAA recognized 23 safety patrollers at a banquet in Dayton Wednesday.
The 2019 Patroller of the Year award was also announced. The event honors those students and school officials who make sure our kids arrive and leave safely every day.
“This year, we are celebrating our 99th year for the program and the one thing that has not changed in the 99 years is that our school safety patrollers still put on their uniform every day and help their fellow students go to, from, and around school safely,” says Cindy Atrician, Public Affairs Manager with Miami Valley AAA.
Gabby Leeper from Ansonia Elementary was named the Safety Patroller of the Year. She was also awarded with a 500 dollar check.
