Samuel W. Tucker Elementary School crossing guard Sheila Richardson has been named one of Virginia’s Most Outstanding Crossing Guards for this past year. Only five others have earned this honor. According to those who nominated her, “Ms. Sheila” is a special part of the Tucker Elementary School community. She gives high fives and offers support to nervous children and parents on the first day of school. Parents place so much confidence in Richardson that second and third graders walk from the corner to school independently under her watch.
