When Kevin Will, Jr. started kindergarten this week, his mom and grandmother were there by his side. And so were over 100 police officers from Cypress, Texas.
The officers turned out to escort the five-year-old to his first day at Wildwood Elementary School because his father couldn’t be there. His dad, Officer Kevin Will, was killed by a drunk driver three months before his son was born.
The officers that served with his father have become like family to the boy and his family, so they wanted to help mark the rite of passage for Kevin, Jr. And they plan to be there for him as he grows up, as Officer Don Egdorf says “to make sure that Kevin, Jr. gets what he needs and has the support that he needs.”
