George Floyd's Story

Born in Fayetteville, North Carolina George Floyd, was a star athlete in high school and among the first of his siblings to attend college. Like all of us, he had some ups and downs in his life, but in adulthood, Floyd became committed to his Christian faith, becoming an active church volunteer and a mentor to troubled youth in his community.
