A GWU track athlete pursuing a criminal justice degree, known as strong friend with an uplifting personality, passed away in an automobile accident in May just after completing his sophomore year. Jalin Lawson’s life was honored both at his funeral in his hometown of Fort Gaines, Ga., and at a Celebration of Life service held at Gardner-Webb University at the start of the fall semester. Sophomore Amber Freeney stated, “celebrating Jalin’s life means remembering who he was and living the way he would want you to live.”
