Standing outside at the Mayor’s Back To School Fair at Fair Park today, Dallas Mayor, Eric Johnson says “This is a great, great event because you do get to see the future. These kids present the future and that’s why I think it’s so important that as the mayor, I continue to let people know that the most important resource we have here in this city are our children. And that’s why supporting education is something I’ve said for many, many years is our top priority. Because I understand that our workforce of the future is here today getting these school supplies.”
This event is so valuable for thousands of DISD students because it offers them free dental screenings, vision screenings, immunizations, lots of school supplies and haircuts.
“This is the 11th year I get to do this. It’s always a lot of fun. I always worry when we have a transition of mayors but the fact that three mayors have kept this going is great for our families, great for the community. So I’m very proud the tradition continues,” said Dallas ISD Superintendent Dr. Michael Hinojosa.
According to Hinojosa 90 percent of the students in the district are economically disadvantaged and often don’t get the services that are offered at the fair.
“So it’s very important that they can get their hair cut. They can get their shots. They can see a dentist. All those things get handled right here so they can get ready for school in a couple weeks,” Hinojosa said.
Accident & Injury Chiropractic was honored to be a part of the Mayor’s Back To School Fair for the second year in a row. Like last year we had the immense pleasure of handing out footballs, soccer balls and lip balms to all the kids. Our Dr. Lou Saucedo said, “We couldn’t be more excited about the opportunity this fair affords us to reach out to and encourage so many kids. I wouldn’t miss this for the world.”
Dr. Saucedo was accompanied by staff members Rebecca, Amy and Allen along with Rowdy from the Dallas Cowboys and Champ from the Dallas Mavericks.
