School Resource Officer Takes Second-Grader Without Dad to Father-Daughter Dance

Breitbart: An Arkansas school resource officer has gone viral for taking a second-grader whose dad passed away to her school’s father-daughter dance.

Avey Cox says she had always dreamed of going to the father-daughter dance, but when her dad passed away, she did not think she would ever be able to go.

That is when Van Buren school resource officer Nick Harvey stepped in. His chief reached out to his fellow officers and suggested they act as volunteers for students without fathers, KFSM reported.

“I reached out to the mother, the last thing I wanted was to get rejected by a second-grader, and then the next day I formally asked if she’d be my date to the daddy/daughter dance,” Harvey said.

Avey said yes, and both made sure to coordinate their outfits, take pictures, and ride in a limousine to get pizza before going to the event. read more

  1. Not a fan of father daughter dances. Of course it’s nice for a guy to do well for a young girl that’s gone through a tough time. But I’m not a fan of a pretend romantic event.

  2. Nice story but why is it viral? What man on this site would not do the same if they knew of the situation? Scores of men would. Sorry but it’s no different than ‘Man Pets Dog’ story

  3. DOJ charges man with kidnapping for taking unrelated girl to Father Daughter dance would be more inline with recent news.

  4. My sperm donor would never have anything to do with school activities for us kids. I’m surprised they still have these types of activities nowadays. There was nothing like this when my kids were growing up either. But then my kids went to private Christian schools.
