HAVELOCK, N.C. (WNCT) – Former Havelock football standout and current Los Angeles Rams’ wide receiver stopped by the city’s police station to meet with the chief during his visit home.
During the visit they discussed ways to get Cooper involved in the department’s “Do the Right Thing” initiative.
The police department started the program over a year ago to help build positive relationships between kids and the police. The initiative recognizes students who go above and beyond to make positive contributions to their schools and communities.
Havelock Police recognize a student every month. The Craven County School Board also selects two past recipients of the award and recognizes them during a board meeting every quarter.
