WEST HOMESTEAD, Pa., Nov. 1—U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao heard compelling testimonies from widows who have benefited from the Steve Young Memorial Scholarship program, which helps the spouses and families of police officers killed in the line of duty carry on with their lives. The Department of Labor announced initial funding for the scholarship program, administered by the National Fraternal Order of Police Foundation, in 2002. Secretary Chao joined Fraternal Order of Police National President, Chuck Canterbury, at a meeting at FOP Lodge #91 in Allegheny County.

"This scholarship fund helps the families of fallen officers whose courage and dedication saved the lives of others in their communities," Secretary Chao said. "We as a nation are grateful for their immeasurable sacrifices, and the Department of Labor is pleased to help honor their memories by providing an additional $1 million to this very special fund to benefit their families."

"Getting people back to work is what this Department does. Giving people hope in their future is our job."
