When a traffic signal failed at one of the area’s busiest intersections a local crossing guard didn’t fail her students.
On the morning of Sept. 26, the light at the intersection of Rt. 25A and Rocky-Point Yaphank Road stopped working. Equipped with only her stop sign, Lawry bravely stepped out into the road and directed eight lanes of traffic and four turn lanes.
Lawry was recently recognized by the Rocky Point Board of Education and Legis. Sarah Anker for her deeds.
“Her dedication to the community has ensured the safety of our children,” said Anker.
Lawry received a certificate for her actions that day.
