DISD kids are getting free breakfast at school this week, in honor of National School Breakfast Week (apparently, this really exists). In an effort to encourage kids not to skip that most important meal of the day, a couple of local celebrities will be serving breakfast at our school cafeterias this Thursday: 

At 7:45 a.m. Bill Bragg, the voice of Big Tex, will be working the cafeteria line at Franklin Middle School. And next door at 8 a.m. you can catch find Burton Gilliam dishing out breakfast goodies at Hillcrest High School. You’ve likely seen him on shows like “Knight Rider,” “The Dukes of Hazzard,” and “Charlie’s Angels.”

As far as local celebrities go, I personally wish they’d snagged Chuck Norris as well. I think a lot of people would have turned out to see Chuck Norris in a hairnet and apron.
