C.J. Herron can’t go to school because his life got off to an early start. He was born premature at 30 weeks, weighing only two pounds and two ounces. He spent several of his first months in the hospital, and his health problems have lingered, leaving him with a compromised immune system.
A cold, a scrape, an elementary school sneeze could prove disastrous. So he stays home and gets instruction in person from a homebound teacher provided by Brenham ISD.
