Siegenthaler recognized as School Safety Patroller of the Year

CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- A fifth grade student has received a special honor for leadership skills and good citizenship.

AAA Wisconsin recently recognized Jacob Siegenthaler, who attends Halmstad Elementary in Chippewa Falls, as its School Safety Patroller of the Year. The organization honors one patrol member in the state each year. Siegenthaler was also honored for his safety skills and school involvement.

"It surprised me because I was just doing what I should have been doing," he said. "And then Ms. Bradley, my supervisor, told me to come to her office one day, and then she told me that I won this award."

Siegenthaler says he likes being in the safety patrol because he helps keep other people safe. Organizers of the award will send him to Washington D.C. He'll also receive a plaque at the Chippewa Area School Safety Patrol's annual picnic on Friday.
