RICHMOND, VA (Wednesday, April 25, 2018) – As the 2017/2018 school year begins its final quarter, the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education and AAA Mid-Atlantic honored 9 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 and selected the top 9 nominees. The winners excelled in the areas of leadership, dependability, character and academics. These 9 extraordinary students each received a $100 gift card and plaque from the Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education.
Raychel Babb from Charles City Elementary School is among the 9 Virginia winners selected as 2017/2018 Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrols of the Year. Raychel is responsible for overseeing flag duty every day, which entails properly putting up, taking down and folding the flags. In this leadership role, she also plans a rotating schedule for the Safety Patrol Officers. She creates the schedule, gives it to the Safety Patrol Coordinator, makes a copy for herself, and is in charge of managing each patrol member during their weekly duties. Like clockwork, you can count on Raychel and her team to get the flags up and down in a very professional and efficient manner. In a recent essay, Raychel wrote, “I put the flag up for Charles City Elementary School every morning and afternoon because I love the flag and I understand why people respect it so much. We stand for the flag, not to focus on what divides us, but on what unites us. As Americans, when we stand, we are doing the ultimate salute to freedom.” Her powerful words showcase her maturity and her compassion for the community as a whole.
“Every student involved in the School 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 9 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.”
The School Safety Patrol program began in 1920 in Chicago, Illinois. Today, there are approximately 654,000 students who serve as safety patrollers throughout the United States helping make schools safer; over 93,000 alone are in Mid-Atlantic territory.
