D’Naysha Cannon, daughter of Pastor Tony and Sister Sybil Cannon of Knoxville, recently traveled to Washington D.C., as a AAA safety patroller.
D’Naysha served in Grace Christian Academy’s safety patrol this past school year.
As a result, she joined more than 500 other safety patrollers from Knoxville and surrounding areas for the safest, most fun trip ever to D.C.
The safety patrollers visited famous sites, such as the Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and White House, to name a few.
She even got a glimpse of the president’s children looking at them from a window.
She was blessed to spend four days, three nights in Washington.
She’s happy to be back home, but thoroughly enjoyed the trip.
