Oswego County BOCES Transportation Supervisor Kathleen Jamerson was recognized as a Safety Champion of Oswego County by the Oswego County Traffic Safety Board at a celebratory breakfast on September 16th.
Jamerson was one of seven area safety champions to be selected to receive this award. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The seven serve as Oswego CountyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s example of dedication to the health and safety of children and adults,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Billie Crandall Brady, coordinator of the Oswego County Traffic Safety Board as she announced the list of recipients who were selected for going above and beyond their everyday duties and incorporating safety in education or law enforcement.
JamersonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s volunteer service has included car seat safety checks, car seat installation and use, a two-county bus driver safety program, bike safety, and has been a presenter at the Regional Awareness Program (RAP) for Young Drivers for the past five years. Jamerson also serves on the Board of Directors for Oswego County Traffic and Safety.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Kathy is a real asset to our organization,Ã¢â‚¬Â Dr. Joseph Camerino, OCB District Superintendent, told the GovernorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Traffic Safety Committee highway safety representative Paul Overbaugh following the celebratory breakfast and award ceremony. Overbaugh oversees thirteen counties in New York State and he was on hand at the ceremony to show his support for the individual honoreesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ recognition.
