Erykah Briggs-White

Senior Erykah Briggs-White's first encounter with campus police was a positive one. As an incoming freshman, Erykah participated in the former FSU C.H.E.E.R. program. While participating in a teambuilding completion, kickball, she sprained her ankle. "While it hurt really bad, I was more so being very dramatic!" Patrol Officer Charles Williams offered Erykah some much needed assistance...he carried her to her dorm! "He really didn't have to do that, but he did and I was very thankful," she states.
