AKRON, Ohio — A local woman who is used to walking runways ran into action to save the life of a baby boy after witnessing a bad crash in Akron earlier this year.
For her heroic actions, Ladonya Williams, 20, of Cuyahoga Falls, received a citizen’s award from Akron Police Chief Steve Mylett on Wednesday afternoon.
“You did it selflessly. You did it with the most noble of intentions and you saved a life,” Mylett told Williams before presenting her with a framed certificate.
Williams began modeling at the age of 14 when she got involved in a program called Fashion Teens of Akron. She has since signed with an agency and become a professional model.
“I want to keep modeling and I want to travel like all over the world and hopefully walk runways all around the world,” she said.
