Today, Superintendent Beverly Emory and Catrina Thompson, the chief of the Winston-Salem Police Department, had lunch with first-graders at Diggs-Latham Elementary.
Lt. L.T. Peterson and Sgt. M. Knight of the Winston-Salem Police Department were also there.
At Kernersville Elementary, Tim Summers, the chief of the Kernersville Police Department, Dana Caudill Jones, the school board chair, and Jonathan Wilson, the Security Director for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, joined students for lunch.
At Walkertown Elementary, Brad Stanley, who is chief deputy for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department, joined other deputies, and Rusty Hall, an Instructional Superintendent with the school system, for lunch with students.
The visits were a way to kick off the district’s new policy of offering a free lunch for on-duty law-enforcement officers willing to drop by an elementary school to have lunch with students.
