AAA Arizona nominates Ruthie Zuelich of Washington Elementary School as 2017’s Crossing Guard of The Year.
Zuelich is one of two crossing guards in Arizona to be awarded this year. She’s spent the past three years at Washington Elementary keeping kids safe. The school nominated Zuelich last year with no success so they tried again this year in a big way. Staff sent thirty-five letters praising Zuelich’s service, the most AAA Arizona had ever seen.
