Meet 11 Amazing People Who Are Keeping Your Kids’ Schools Safe

These people’s extraordinary stories have made K-12 schools more safe and secure.

Every campus community strives to keep its operations as efficient, safe and enjoyable as possible.

Occasionally, however, a member of that community goes above and beyond to ensure the safety of their campus. It’s for this reason that Campus Safety has begun honoring the heroes that have worked to make campuses safer around the country.

From school resource officers to students to doctors, Campus Safety has seen people from every background distinguish themselves to meet the true definition of a hero.

Sometimes these heroes do something dramatic, like saving a life or averting a disaster. Other times their actions are more subtle, like improving emergency plans or reporting suspicious behavior.

Today Campus Safety is honoring the people we’ve covered in the K-12 community that have acted heroically. These incredible stories are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Stay tuned for our heroes list for universities and hospitals in the coming days!
