This week Wisconsin observed its annual Adult School Crossing Guard Recognition.  Superintendent Susan Borden, DeForest Police Chief Bob Henze and Lieutenant Dan Furseth visited with the school district’s adult crossing guards, Suzanne Wentland, Roger Guffey and Nora Geach. Borden and Henze thanked them for their service to the school district and community, and presented each with a certificate of appreciation.

Adult school crossing guards typically serve with a dedication that belies the rigors of harsh weather and heavy traffic.  They provide a valuable service in helping to ensure the safety of our children walking between home and school.

The recognition event was developed in Wisconsin through a collaborative partnership of agencies and organizations representing the state, county, and local levels. The members of the partnership include:  Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Milwaukee Police Department, Wisconsin Traffic Safety Officers Association, Madison Police Department, Wisconsin School Safety Coordinators Association, Superior Police Department, Wisconsin Highway Safety Coordinators Association, AAA Wisconsin, Wisconsin Driver & Traffic Safety Education Association, and Traffic & Parking Control Company Inc.
