Alumnus in the Spotlight: George C. Freeman Jr.

Current Occupation/Title: Firefighter

My Academy at Coral Reef: The Legal & public Affairs Academy

Favorite Memory/ Activity: Partaking in America’s favorite pastime in which we know as Football, Conversing alongside friends and attending as many extra-curricular activities as possible, not limited to school dances and basketball games.

Life after Graduation:
I attended Alabama A&M University where I majored in Sociology with a minor in Criminal Justice. While at AAMU I pledged the greatest and most prestigious fraternity known to man: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated, Delta Gamma Chapter. I graduated from my beloved alma mater in the spring of 2008, with the heartfelt title of Cum Laude with a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice.

Soon after graduating from college, I came home to Miami and worked at PRC for a few months and decided that I would follow my passion. With that being said, I prayed and asked God to lead my steps…a few long and hard fought months later, I earned the title of being a certified firefighter. Unfortunately finding a job with a fire department was no easy task, so I worked at Enterprise Rent- A-Car in the management trainee program for the next two years.

Over those two years I applied to numerous fire departments without success. By God’s timing and not mine at all, I finally received an opportunity to work with a fire department in May of 2011. The department that I was oh so blessed to work at is The East Point Fire Department which is actually located in East Point, Georgia; a small suburb of Atlanta Georgia where I currently reside.
