TULSA, Oklahoma -

Editor's note: We're preparing to move into a new building at the end of the year and we're sharing some of what we find in the old one.  Here's another treasure from our vault.

What was the secret to earning your classmates' respect when you were in elementary school?  Getting good grades?  Being a star athlete?  

At Briarglen Elementary in Tulsa, some kids thought the key was becoming a member of the school's Safety Patrol.

Reporter Winifred Washington filed this report on the "elite" unit on May 10, 1982.  

If you were one of the members of the Safety Patrol in the story, please drop us a line at newsdesk@newson6.net.
