In celebration of National Read Across America, Sheriff Mike Tregre and several fellow officers enjoyed reading and speaking to students at local elementary schools March 17-18, 2022.

Sheriff Tregre read “Delilah’s Delightful Dream,” a story about respecting others and cooperation and teamwork, for third graders at Emily C. Watkins Elementary School in LaPlace. He and other officers also read to kindergarten through third grade students at LaPlace Elementary.

Sheriff Tregre and all of the officers stressed to students that reading is essential to success in their life, and the more they read the more they will learn. Reading to students was a wonderful way to spend their morning, the officers said.

Joining Sheriff Tregre were Officers Cameron Carrier, Anita Haley, Gregory Rogers, Shelmyra Clark, Ashley Clement, Brandon Barlow, Carolina Pineda, Whitney Edwards, and Paul Swancey.
