San Elizario school to honor fallen deputy at dance


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – One San Elizario school is taking steps to honor fallen Deputy Peter Herrera. 

On Friday, Alarcon Elementary School will host its second annual Father/Daughter Mother/Son Dance.

Last year, the Herrera family helped the children in picking an outfit for the special night. 

The school will be returning the favor by planting a tree on campus in memory of Deputy Herrera before the dance.  

The Sheriff’s Office faculty will also take on a special task by being the companions to those who don’t have dancing partners. 

The dance will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the school’s gymnasium located on 12501 Socorro Rd.
