The Sheriff's Office lined up on both sides of the sidewalk to give Izabella Manning a queen's entrance at Fairview Elementary School in Rocky Mount on Wednesday. Deputies then walked with her to the classroom, giving hugs and gathering for a group photo.
"We escorted her to her classroom on her first day of school; as we wish Deputy Manning could have," read the post. "Because Deputy David Manning (839) gave his all, we pledge to give all we have in protecting his offspring."
David Manning was killed in a March 2018 collision in Tarboro. Four people were arrested in connection with the crash.
