Liberty awards scholarship to high school student arrested for gun violation

Liberty awards scholarship to high school student arrested for gun violation
May 2, 2013 : Liberty University News Service

A North Carolina high school student made national headlines when he was arrested on Monday and faces expulsion for accidentally leaving a shotgun in his pickup truck in the school parking lot.

Liberty University Chancellor Jerry Falwell, Jr., while traveling in North Carolina, learned of Cole Withrow's story from a local evening news broadcast. The 18-year-old was wearing a 'Liberty Football' T-shirt. Falwell followed up with him, discovering his sister was a graduate.

Falwell issued the following statement: 'When I reached out to encourage this responsible and impressive young man, I learned that he wanted to go to Liberty University, but couldn't afford it. I told him that we would do whatever he needed so that he can attend Liberty. Anti-gun zealots tried to vilify him for doing the right thing, so Liberty has decided to award him the help he needs to attend a private Christian college. I was really impressed with Cole. He is a humble and meek Christian kid who only wants to do the right thing! We want students like Cole Withrow.'

Some of that's a good thing.


Yes! It is always nice to hear something good come of a bad

situation. I am glad this boy is getting rewarded for doing the right thing in this upside down left is right world. And considering the price of education these days, it is nice to know someone is getting something in the name of "Liberty!"
