Before school started, the Harris County Precinct 3, who are the School Resource Officers for Dayton ISD, gave away over 250 backpacks to students in Dayton ISD. Constable Sherman Eagleton and his deputies partnered with Joseph House Community Outreach Center to provide the backpacks on a first-come, first-serve basis. In a little under two hours, all backpacks had been given away with more people in line. Sergeant Kevin Wilson said that the goal for next year is to double the number of backpacks that are given away in Dayton. With the turnout of this first year, the extra 250 backpacks will not last much longer than the ones that were given away this year. Dayton ISD would like to thank Constable Eagleton and the Harris County Constable Precinct 3 Officers for all of their help and this great donation to our students.
