Braylon Helps Kids Go to College

New, comments

Braylon Edwards no longer plays in Cleveland, but he is still active in the community there.

Nine Cleveland high school students celebrated earning $10,000 each for college Saturday thanks to football star Braylon Edwards.

The scholarships were giving away at the The 3rd Annual Braylon Edwards Foundation Advance 100 Awards Banquet, held at Cuyahoga Community College.

The event celebrates those Cleveland Metropolitan School District high school juniors who continue in the program started several years ago by Braylon Edwards, formerly of the Cleveland Browns, who donated $1 million for college scholarships.

Among the 9 students receiving $10,000 was Kaleb Jarvis, who's mother raised 12 children in all. The Collinwood High School graduate says it will be a dream come true to embark on a criminal justice career at the University of Cincinnati. Kaleb will be the first in his family to attend college.

 

It's always nice to see stories like this pertaining to players whose public reputations aren't too great.
