Supervising Deputy District Attorney Michael Dowd Adopted by First Graders

On Wednesday, Supervising Deputy District Attorney Michael Dowd stood before a room full of first graders at Upland Christian Academy in Rancho Cucamonga and discussed the importance of staying in school.

The Academy recently had all their classes adopt a public servant or servants to learn about what they do, and Dowd was selected by Mrs. Beth Paxton’s first grade class.

Dowd’s presentation also highlighted the role of a Deputy District Attorney and why they are so important to the community and public safety.

“The entire presentation including questions from kids lasted about forty-five minutes,” said Dowd. “They loved the items we gave them especially the Junior DA stickers.  I had them take an oath when they started putting them on that they would promise to stay in school, do good in the community and stay out of trouble.”
