The recent action of a 19-year-old Geneva County man to save his 11-year-old cousin from drowning has been recognized by Alabama Gov. Bob Riley.
Monday, State Senator Harri Ann Smith along with Representative Warren Beck delivered a letter of thanks and $1,000 check from the Governor's office.
On July, 5 Bradley Whiteside drowned in the Pea River in Geneva after saving his cousin from the turbulent waters.
That unselfish act was also recognized by Geneva County commissioners.
The $1,000 from the governor is to go toward an after-school recreation program to be established in Bradley Whiteside's name.
