Troopers Bringing Smiles in Local Schools

Submitted by Ann Gardner

Burkeville ISD is excited to welcome a new program from the Texas Department of Public Safety called Read with a Trooper.  On Tuesday, August 28, 2018, Sergeant Davis ate lunch with the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.  During her stay Sergeant Davis assisted the children with opening their milk, and ate her lunch all the while answering questions the children asked about her uniform, car and responsibilities.

Sergeant Davis began the Read with a Trooper about three years ago and invited BISD to join this school year.  She, as well as other troopers, will be regularly visiting Burkeville ISD campuses to read to our students every other week.  BISD welcomes this partnership and looks forward to fostering this relationship.
