Letter to the Editor & Sheriff Elmer Tanner:

RE: Take Care of Corsicana (#TCC)

A Theme was recently introduced through Principle Shade Boulware at Corsicana High School. The theme is "Take Care of Corsicana." While this theme has been embraced throughout the high school and within our district it also extends into out community and out Sheriff's Department. 

Last night, a Lancaster ISD bus stalled out right before the railroad track at Dobbins and Northwood Blvd. The bus was carrying a team of middle school volleyball players headed to Collins Middle School to play Corsicana. I happened to be behind the bus and stopped to check on them. The Lancaster bus driver was thanking God the bus did not stall on the rail road tracks. I called out Executive Director of Operations Chris Gibbs, within minutes he had a Corsicana school bus, bus driver, bus mechanic and himself on the scene. Before help arrived at the scene, I contacted the City Police for assistance with traffic. Maneuvering around a stalled bus, the rail road track and oncoming traffic was cumbersome and dangerous.

Right after I called the City Police, a Sheriff's Deputy William Grigsby stopped. He got out of his vehicle and I informed him that I had just called the City. He politely introduced himself. When I told him the situation he said, "I will not leave you."

We successfully got the Lancaster Team to Collins, and fixed their bus. I am proud to know that #TCC extends into our community. Those words, "I will not leave you," are from a true servant. Thank you Officer Grigsby for taking care of Corsicana and a visiting team from Lancaster.
