Son of 9/11 firefighter receives scholarship

Jordan Williams, a sophomore at Kennesaw State University, has won a scholarship from the National Law Enforcement and Firefighters Children’s Foundation. The NLEAFCF scholarship and grant program began in 2006 and recognizes outstanding children of firefighters or law enforcement officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. Twenty-eight scholarships were awarded, reports the Rockdale Newton Citizen.
