Recent Westerville South High School graduate Josia Klein is one of a select group of Ohio seniors to receive the 26th annual AAA School Safety Patrol $1,000 Grant

Each year, AAA Ohio Auto Club awards this grant to 10 former AAA School Safety Patrol members to assist them as they further their education after high school.

Klein graduated in the top six percent of her class and plans to study English at the Ohio State University in the fall.

Each year, millions of elementary school students across the United States and in 30 other nations volunteer their time to help ensure their peers make it to and from school safely.

To apply, students must complete an application, provide at least one written letter of recommendation and write a 500-word essay on how their experience in the AAA School Safety Patrol influenced their lives.
