A Southgate Elementary student has been inducted into the AAA School Safety Patrol Hall of Fame.

Mason Betcher was recently named along with only 9 other state-wide safety patrol kids into the 2019 class (Mason was one of only 10 submissions from the state of Washington to receive this exemplary award).

Mason will get to enjoy an awards ceremony before a Seattle Mariners game in his honor in Seattle at T-Mobile Park on April 26.

Here is the criteria in which the Safety Patrol nominations are judged on...

Patrollers are evaluated and judged on their commitment to traffic safety, citizenship, leadership skills, and contributions to school safety patrol programs. Nominations require input from both the patroller and their advisor, including responses to a series of essay questions. This year, the panel reviewed and evaluated more than 35 nominations to determine the top 10 inductees.

Congratulations to Mason, keep up the great work and if you want to read more about Mason, take a look at the article from our News Partner KNDU here
