Son of fallen officer gets police escort to first day of kindergarten
HOUSTON (WKRC) - A young boy received a special police escort to his first day of school.
Houston Police officer Kevin Will was hit and killed by a drunk driver in 2011.
Will had been with the department for less than two years at the time of his death and his wife was seven months pregnant, according to KPRC.
“I texted Todd and Don and told them I wanted to have a few officers walk Kevin to school and then it went viral,” Kevin Will Jr.'s mother, Alisha Will said. “I think today it's emotional because Kevin was supposed to be here and he's not and yet all these people stepped up to be there.”
The escort was complete with dozens of officers from the Houston Police Department, including the mounted patrol and the department's helicopter.
Alisha added that she hopes to do something special for her son on the first day of school every year.
