Lynnwood Elementary student selected as 2015 AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame Inductee

my newsAnnie De Monte, a sixth grader at Lynnwood Elementary School, was selected as one of 10 outstanding patrollers in Washington state to be inducted in the 2015 AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame.

In recognition of her dedication to safety, community stewardship and leadership, De Monte will be recognized at an evening awards ceremony before a Seattle Mariners game at Safeco Field on Friday, April 24.

As a long standing tradition, AAA Washington and a panel of judges from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction and the Washington Traffic Safety Commission select top patrollers from schools across Washington each year and honor their accomplishments through induction in the AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame.

Patrollers are evaluated and judged on their commitment to traffic safety, citizenship, leadership skills, and contributions to school safety patrol programs. Nominations require input from both the patroller and their advisor, including responses to a series of essay questions. This year, the panel reviewed and evaluated nearly 50 nominations to determine the top 10 inductees.

Virginia Schlais, school safety patrol advisor at Olympic Elementary in Longview, will also be recognized as the fourth annual AAA School Safety Patrol Advisor of the Year.
