Walla Walla Public Schools students recently participated in the The Chief for a Day program with local first responders. This program is an opportunity to celebrate the lives of children living in our community who have a disability and/or chronic illness, by letting them serve as honorary Chiefs for our local public safety and correctional justice agencies. The nominations came from family, teachers, neighbors, and friends.
