Yankees will pay for education of children of NYPD cop Rafael Ramos

Recommended Posts

Yankee owner George Steinbrenner died in 2010, but his appreciation for the men and women in blue who protect New York City lives on.

For 32 years, Steinbrenner's Yankee Silver Shield Foundation has provided for the education of the children of New York City police officers, firemen and Port Authority employees who died in the line of duty, and will do so for the family of NYPD officer Rafael Ramos, gunned down by a cold-blooded killer Saturday along with his partner, Wenjian Liu.

The foundation will pay for the education of Ramos' son, 13-year-old Jaden, who attends Charles O. Dewey MS in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, and offered to pay for the education of another son, Justin, who is a sophomore at Bowdoin College in Maine.

On Sunday, however, Bowdoin president Barry Mills informed the Ramos family that the college would provide full financial aid to enable Ramos to complete his Bowdoin education.
