Kam's Corner: 97-year-old crossing guard still going strong

Posted: Updated:

Making sure your children get to school safely is a top priority, and for one Detroit crossing guard, it's become her life's work.

Mary White, 97, has been helping kids cross the street at Stewart Performance Academy in Detroit for more than 50 years.

White, who is an employee of the Detroit Police Traffic Safety Unit, shows up for work even in the worst of weather conditions. 

She says she not only provides a service, but also stability and consistency for students who see her daily.
