Members of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at Georgetown College collected donations for Officer Nick Rodman, a fallen member of the police force, on Saturday, April 1.
According to the Louisville Police, Officer Rodman suffered severe injuries after another car hit him at an intersection during a high-speed chase on the night of Tuesday, March 28.
Rodman died Wednesday afternoon at University Hospital in Louisville. Rodman, who was a graduate of Georgetown College, was also a member of the university’s PIKE chapter.
“He’s got two young kids and a wife and they’re going to be struggling for a while,” PIKE president Nick Kathman said. “So we are going to be doing whatever we can to help him and his family out.”
Members of the fraternity carried a bucket around with a picture of Rodman’s face on it and asked for donations for his family at a Georgetown soccer game.
“The brothers of Pi Kappa Alpha are going to be right behind them the entire time,” Kathman said.
