PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The family of slain officer Moses Walker Jr. has started a scholarship in his name.

For the first time since her son’s murder on August 18th, the mother of officer Moses Walker Junior made a public appearance. But she didn’t just speak about her son, she spoke about the future, as her family made a $1,000 donation to the ACHIEVEability program for a scholarship to help a single mother with education or housing.

“I just wanted to give back to the community. My son was a giving person and I know that he would want this to happen. It was just a way through my grief of helping someone else.”

Jamily Harris-Morrison with ACHIEVEability says Walker’s mother, Wayne Walker-Lipscomb, herself was a recipient of help from the program.

“There will be an application process. Everyone who applies for it will know the meaning behind it. Wayne is going to continue to be a part of the selection process so definitely his spirit will be throughout ACHIEVEability,” said Harris-Morrison.
