We Are Jenna Strong
Clarksville, TN – On Thursday, January 29th, 2015 at 9:30am, Officers from the Clarksville Police Department gathered to take a photo for Jenna King.
Jenna King is a local 9-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She immediately began her treatments and will be receiving Chemotherapy treatments for the next two years.
Detective Candace Rundle came up with the idea because she knows Jenna King’s family personally.There are other Officers from the Clarksville Police Department who know the King family as well.
We all met in front of CPD Headquarters to take a photo to give to Jenna, showing that we are behind her in her fight against cancer.
Jenna and her mother were not able to attend the photo shoot but came by CPD Headquarters later in the afternoon. At that time, Deputy Chief Michael Parr presented Jenna with the CPD Police Coin and a CPD Police Patch.
The Police Patch given to Jenna is a patch that has been proudly worn on the uniform of a Clarksville Police Officer in service to the citizens of the City of Clarksville. The Clarksville Community has already begun the battle with Jenna through multiple fundraisers, Instagram posts, and a Facebook page.
Her Facebook page can be found under We Are Jenna Strong. For Jenna, the Clarksville Police Department would like to say, “We Are Jenna Strong!”
