Commish praises philanthropist Rudman

Earlier today, Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey honored Kal and Lucille Rudman at Police Headquarters for making another contribution to a college scholarship program that benefits Philadelphia police officers.

The Rudmans donated $10,000 to the program, which will cover tuition grants for more than 20 cops who will take three-credit justice, sociology or physics courses at Community College of Philadelphia in the fall. Since 2002, the Rudmans have donated more than $82,000 to the scholarship program, which has helped some 238 cops take courses at Community College.
