— A Thom­son Es­tates El­e­men­tary School stu­dent was hon­ored for her work as a school safety pa­trol member dur­ing a cer­e­mony last week.

Sion­nah Wil­lis, a fifth-grader at Thom­son Es­tates, was one of 10 stu­dents hon­ored as Out­stand­ing School Safety Pa­trol Mem­bers for the 2015-2016 school year at an event in New Cas­tle on Thurs­day. Each of the stu­dents re­ceived a plaque and a Visa gift card in recog­ni­tion of their ac­com­plish­ments from AAA Mid-At­lantic and the Mid-At­lantic Foun­da­tion for Safety and Ed­u­ca­tion.

Ukee Wash­ing­ton, an­chor at CBS 3 in

NEW CAS­TLE, DEL.

Philadel­phia, served as the pro­gram’s guest pre­sen­ter and Lt. Colonel Matthew Jami­son of the New Cas­tle County Po­lice Depart­ment was the guest speaker.

The stu­dents hon­ored are part of the AAA School Safety Pa­trols pro­gram, act­ing as school lead­ers by teach­ing other stu­dents about traf­fic safety and serv­ing as role mod­els for younger chil­dren. Par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents com­plete train­ing in traf­fic safety so they can pro­tect stu­dents from the haz­ards of cross­ing roads and high­ways on the way to and from school, as­sist bus driv­ers in safely trans­port­ing stu­dents and serve other lead­er­ship func­tions un­der the di­rec­tion of school of­fi­cials.
