William Land students meet heroic dog at Capitol

e-Connections Post William Land

A field trip to California’s Capitol turned into something more last Thursday (April 11) for second and third graders from William Land Elementary School.

During their tour of the building, students from the classes of teachers Pete Vega and Mike Pickering were treated to photos with Bodie, the heroic canine officer injured while on the line of duty with the Sacramento Police Department last year.

Bodie was being honored at the Capitol when the students — and SCUSD Board of Education member Christina Pritchett — happened by.

She snapped the photos and the students got face time with a hero.
