Local crossing guards get much deserved recognition

They have the delicate task of gently guiding our children to and from school.

Have you thanked your local crossing guard lately?

CBS 58 News quickly got word of one dedicated crossing guard at Alexander Mitchell School.

So this being a week when Wisconsin is recognizing her and others like her, we just had to ask..what keeps you coming back through all sorts of weather year after year? 

\"When the kids say they love me,\" replied crossing guard Luz Quinonez-Hurd. \"They don't want me to leave the school, they just say I'm a great person.\"

Luz is part of a team of crossing guards that work with the Milwaukee Police Department.

She says she'd do it, even if she didn't get accolades. But does ask that in return for her service we all slow down when driving through our neighborhoods.
