The DeKalb Knights, DeKalb County Police Department’s basketball team, narrowly beat the McNair High Mustangs in a charity game Tuesday. In the process, two seniors got money for college.
The cops trailed for a while but came back to win, 52-48.
During halftime, the DeKalb County Police Athletic League awarded two college-bound seniors $1,000 each. Kennedi Shambly is headed to Tennessee State University, and Hannah Hosley is going to Howard University.
Students at the Bouldercrest Road school outside Atlanta applied for the scholarships by turning in an essay, college acceptance letter, high school transcript and a letter of recommendation.
