    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Brea Bulkley was honored on May 13th at Sunset Elementary School as the “AAA School Safety Patroller of the Year for Utah and Nevada.” This award is a result of the outstanding work Brea has done as the school’s only safety patrol lieutenant. Brea was chosen for this position because of her service on the safety patrol as a fourth grade student. In addition to her service on the safety patrol, AAA requires recipients of this honor to demonstrate leadership qualities, knowledge and skills in safety, involvement in school, excellent citizenship and volunteerism efforts.

    Brea trained almost all of the 20 members of the safety patrol by having them shadow her at all positions. She taught the rules of safety and then quizzed the members about these rules. Every patrol member needs to pass the safety course before joining the patrol.

    The safety patrol is not the only school activity in which Brea participates. She is an excellent student with high expectations for herself. She excelled in the science fairs, Reflections contest and The Evening of the Arts night. Brea has been a member of the Sunset Express singing group for 3 years.

    After attending Southern Utah University’s science camp where her group won an award for the best investigators and scientists, Brea sponsored a two week neighborhood day camp for kids ranging in ages from 3 to 8 years. Each day Brea organized different themes, ranging from arts and crafts, outdoor sports, science day, camping day and water activities. The camp was so popular she is planning on doing it again this year.

    Brea’s older brother has Downs Syndrome and Autism and this led to Brea being especially in tune with special needs students and enjoys volunteering to be with them and helping them in their classroom and at recess. Brea is very involved in her church. Some of the projects she has been involved in are as follows: Toy drive for Primary Children’s’ Medical Center, and a fundraiser for the Children of Home Academy. Brea offers free babysitting to families in her neighborhood and tutors younger children who need help with math and reading skills.
