Millvale to honor longtime crossing guard with special day

Erica Cebzanov | For the Tribune-Review
Mayor Brian Spoales and council President James Machajewski recognized Susan Meyers at the Millvale council meeting on May 14. Meyers was honored for her 17 years as a crossing guard in the borough.

Susan Meyers has worked for three Millvale mayors and three police chiefs over her 17 years of employment with the borough. She will hang up her crossing guard vest when she retires in June.

Mayor Brian Spoales has proclaimed June 7 as Sue Meyers’ Day in Millvale, in celebration of Meyers’ dedication to ensuring children’s safety at their North Avenue-Elizabeth Street intersection school bus stop.

“School crossing guards have served our community and helped to drive down the rates of young pedestrian deaths and injuries while traffic volumes have increased,” Spoales said at a May 14 council meeting.

“We the borough and the citizens of Millvale thank you for your selfless dedication and support of Millvale’s children for the past 17 years,” he continued. “Standing in the rain, the snow, sleet, Millvale’s children knew that you would be there to meet them when they boarded the bus and came home again.”

Spoales read the following statement on behalf of Police Chief Tim Komoroski, who is Meyers’ cousin.

“Crossing guards walk in the intersections and put themselves in harm’s way, hoping and praying that the traffic stops when directed. … In Millvale you are family, and you will always be a part of Millvale.”

Upon her retirement, Meyers will relocate to Morris, Pa., to live near her daughter and grandchildren.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
