AAA Mid-Atlantic and The Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education honored eight New Jersey students as Outstanding AAA School Safety Patrol Members for the 2018-2019 school year. Among those eight students is Yana Brandenburg, a sixth grader from Charles W. Sandman Consolidated School in Cape May, New Jersey.
Yana was honored on June 11th during a school assembly surrounded by all her teachers and classmates.
Yana Brandenburg is described as punctual, reliable, unassuming and humble. She leads by example, consistently anticipating the needs of others and acting on them. She is the first to hold a door, clean up a messy area, or politely redirect a peer to the correct behavior. Yana serves as Lieutenant on the patrol and, as Principal Cathcart stated, "her leadership abilities are second to none."
As an Outstanding School Safety Patrol Member, Noll received a Visa Gift Card and a plaque in recognition of her accomplishments.
For almost 100 years, AAA Mid-Atlantic has sponsored and provided major support for the AAA School Safety Patrol by supplying training materials, recognition programs for service, and patrol equipment, including the familiar badge and belt.
