Crossing Guard Celebrates 31 Years

Mary Cutting has been a School Crossing Guard for the City of Overland Park Police Department for 31 years! She has covered several schools during this time. She spent 20 years at Rosehill Elementary, four years at Oakhill Elementary and Oxford Middle School, and is presently serving at Pawnee Elementary School. She loves her crossing and the kids.

Mary grew up in Kansas City, MO and has been married to her husband, Luther, for 60 years. Together they have 4 children, 7 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. They also have an 11 year old Pomeranian named Libby. On nice days Libby goes to work with Mary.

You may not realize it, but every day a crossing guard works, they not only keep our children safe, but they also keep a police officer available to answer emergency calls.

Thank you for your many years of dedication and service to our children. Our community relies heavily on our crossing guards. They are trusted with our most valued and irreplaceable treasures, our children.
