(Campus Reform) Southern Methodist University revoked a promise to the daughter of a slain police officer that she could perform the first-serve at a volleyball game to honor her father, but now claims the cancellation was a mistake and that the invitation still stands.
Victoria Smith, the daughter of Sgt. Michael Smith, was supposed to give the honorary serve at the SMU volleyball game on November 12. Sgt. Smith worked with the Dallas Police Department, and was among the five killed in the line of duty on July 7.
