Officer D. J. Day
Friday April 26 was a special day for the community and Royal ISD. Area law enforcement offices, fire departments with school personnel and students joined together to celebrate the day with Brookshire’s Officer D. J.
A 9:00 A.M. a parade in D.J.’s honor kicked off from Brookshire Police Department. Filled with flashing lights and sirens, the parade traveled up FM 359 where it circled Royal Elementary School and Royal Early Childhood Center.
While D. J. took his job of throwing candy to the students very seriously students and teachers cheered and held up signs of encouragement as the parade passed by.
A student at Royal Elementary, D. J. is battling brain cancer that has spread to his spine, but he still knew what he wanted to be when he grew up- a police officer or fireman.
