    Safety Patrol role models recognized for their leadership


    This year, two LWSD safety patrollers, Arthur Chen of Ben Franklin Elementary and Max Robert Miller of Clara Barton Elementary were honored as Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrollers by AAA Washington, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.

    To be considered for the award, patrollers answered several short essay questions and received a letter of support from their school advisors.

    “Arthur is a role model for the students he serves. He has shown leadership by training others, being a role model throughout the school day and flawlessly carrying out his safety patrol responsibilities. Arthur’s dedication to his squad and those he helped, has inspired several new recruits to sign up for next year.” – Gretchen Ann Smith, Ben Franklin Elementary Safety Patrol Coordinator.

    “Max showed exemplary leadership at all times. He helped train new members by going to the various stations and demonstrating proper protocol. He was especially helpful in always fixing our walkies that continuously had issues. Max will be missed for all the contributions he made on Safety Patrol. I know he will continue his leadership in middle school and beyond.” – Joanie Chinn, Clara Barton Elementary Safety Patrol Coordinator.
