From left, Vincennes Crossing Guards Jimmy Hook, Phyllis Johnson, and Floyd Overbey were saluted as “unsung heroes” for children by the Vincennes Civitan Club on Thursday.

 

They are crossing guards for the Vincennes Community School Corporation who protect children in all sorts of weather.
Not available for the photo are crossing guards Bill Wilkens, Lorraine Harris, and Jim Woodsmall. All six crossing guards received certificates of
appreciation and restaurant gift cards from the Civitan Club. Although not without its risks, as Johnson learned when she was hit by a car on April 2,
the crossing guards said they love their job because they love the children they serve.
