First Responder of the Week:
The Corsicana Daily Sun nominates Lavon Denson as this week’s Featured First Responder.
Denson is a police officer for Corsicana Independent School District. She was nominated for her initiative when she helped two residents involved in a traffic accident during her crossing guard duties at Collins Middle School while filling in for Officer Cruze. Denson’s utmost goal is protecting the students and staff.
Denson’s two sons followed in her law enforcement foot steps, her oldest is a police officer in Carthage and her youngest is set to graduate the police academy at Navarro College. Fallen DART officer, Brent Thompson is the one who encouraged Denson to join law enforcement. She will be riding in Thompson’s honor in the 16th Annual Ride for the Fallen benefiting the Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation April 28-30.
The Corsicana Daily Sun recognizes Denson for a job well done and her dedication and respect for everyone she meets.
