A Kentucky School Resource Officer (SRO) purchased Chick-fil-A for all the students in his school after finding out many had never had the popular chicken sandwich.
Jackson Academy’s SRO, Deputy Chris Shelton, was giving a talk about manners when he referenced Chick-fil-A’s customer service.

However, Shelton noticed many students didn’t understand the reference.
“We decided that we would get Chick-fil-A for every kid in the building,” Shelton told WBKO.
The officer spent more than $200 to buy 60 meals so every student could sample the sandwiches.
The Academy, which helps students with behavioral and academic issues, celebrated with a tweet:
“When our SRO learned that many of our students had never eaten @ChickfilaBGKY he took it upon himself to change that…by buying the ENTIRE school a sandwich! Making memories, providing experiences, loving students, changing lives,” it tweeted.
Shelton told the station Wednesday he saw kids smile for the first time at the school.
“It was a really good reaction, worth every penny. Just to show them, hey, you know, just because I wear a badge and a gun and [I’m] a law enforcement officer, we’re not bad,” he said. “You know, we’re just, we’re here to help.”
