Sheriff Parker and Lt. Wimberly visit Doyline Elementary for Dr. Seuss birthday celebration

by Minden Press-Herald

Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker and WPSO Lt. Chase Wimberly visited Doyline Elementary School on Friday to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday by reading selections from his books to the students.

Sheriff Parker read from “The Cat in the Hat,” the 1957 classic that propelled Dr. Seuss to fame, while Lt. Wimberly entertained the students with “There’s a Wocket in my Pocket,” a whimsical tale of strange creatures living in a boy’s house.

“We had a great time with the students, reading from the books and talking with them,” Sheriff Parker said. “We enjoy visiting schools and interacting with the young people. It’s a way to connect…to let them know who we are.”

For Sheriff Parker, the visit was a homecoming of sorts, as he had served as the school resource officer in Doyline in 2018.

“It was nice to be back in the school,” he said. “I think some of the students remembered me.”

The event was a delightful and educational experience for the students, who enjoyed the stories and the opportunity to engage with local law enforcement officers in a positive and friendly setting.
