GREENVILLE, S.C. (January 29, 2018) – Bob Jones University will host the second annual Allen Jacobs Memorial Prayer Breakfast Thursday, March 15, to honor the memory of Officer Allen Jacobs and recognize law enforcement professionals across Greenville County. The breakfast will begin at 7 a.m. in the Davis Room of the Dixon-McKenzie Dining Common on the BJU campus.
“We are grateful for the dedicated men and women who protect and serve our communities every day,” said BJU President Steve Pettit. “BJU is honored for the opportunity to pay tribute to Greenville’s fallen officers and to show our appreciation for our local law enforcement.”
During the breakfast, the Allen Jacobs Award of Valor, Public Safety Employee of the Year, Award of Merit, and the Distinguished Achievement Award will be presented. Nominations for these awards may be submitted through Friday, Feb. 23.
The breakfast is being provided free of charge to law enforcement personnel. Business and community leaders across the Upstate are encouraged to attend and sponsor the event.
Proceeds from the breakfast will benefit the Allen Jacobs Memorial Scholarship Fund, which was created at the request of the Jacobs family, to assist BJU students majoring in criminal justice. Since 2016, over $65,000 has been raised for the scholarship fund.
