USC women’s coach Dawn Staley has been sworn in as an Honorary Deputy with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department, Sheriff Leon Lott announced. The ceremony took place on Tuesday, following practice at the Carolina Coliseum.
Lott said Staley has been generous with volunteering her time to support the youth programs of the Sheriff’s Department. She has let children of various backgrounds interact with her team, and offer them insight and hope for their future, he said.
After creating The Dawn Staley Foundation in Philadelphia, which was aimed at giving inner-city children positive input through after-school programs, Staley founded INNERSOLE, which aims to provide new sneakers to children who are homeless and children who are in need.
