Capt. Debi Henderson of the Sheriff’s Reserve Unit (SRU), William H. Clinger, III, chairman of the SRU board, and Sheriff Jerry L. Sanders, Jr. presented the check to Sister Kathy McGowen, SSJ, President of DNA and Sister Maggie Gannon, OSF, Principal. The funds will go toward tuition aid. 100% of Drexel-Neumann students receive tuition assistance and the donation will help the school and its students with their mission in Chester of integrating Gospel values with academic excellence in a multicultural environment.
The Delaware County Pa. Sheriff’s Reserve Unit was founded in the wake of the attacks on September 11, 2001, and in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The unit is staffed by volunteers trained to provide traffic and crowd control assistance to the Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies in Delaware County and beyond when requested. The unit is self-sustaining and does not receive financial support from the county. The SRU’s fundraising efforts support the needs of the unit and allows for the awarding of scholarships to deserving students at Delaware County Community College First Responder/Emergency Services programs, and other deserving schools in the county.
