LaRaye Gabbitas, crossing guard at Santaquin Elementary, spreads sunshine to all the elementary children who use the crosswalk, as well as those driving by the school with her monthly greeting signs. One cannot miss her “WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL” sign with balloons at the beginning of the year, her Happy Halloween sign, or the “HAVE A GREAT SUMMER” sign with a border of flowers.
