Barrow Co. student wins state AAA school safety patrol award

By Staff
AUSTELL — Prestin Boyd from Bethlehem Elementary School in Barrow County is Georgia's AAA School Safety Patroller of the Year Award. Only one patrol member, per state, in The Auto Club Group’s territory wins the annual award.

The AAA School Safety Patroller of the Year Award recognizes the patroller who "best exemplifies the leadership qualities, good citizenship, school involvement, and application of safety skills vital to effectively and responsibly wear the AAA School Safety Patrol badge."

During the nomination process, students were picked by their teacher, principal, or supervisor and then judged based on their performance with leadership qualities, safety skills, school involvement, and citizenship. This year, one person was selected as the winner from their essay entry that described, “How participating in the AAA School Safety Patrol™ program helped them become a better leader.”

AAA - the Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation is proud to fund the AAA School Safety Patrol program. This program is the largest traffic safety program in the world with more than 630,000 children participating at 32,500 schools throughout the country.
