The Criminal Justice Department at Remington College – North Houston Campus successfully sponsored an exciting day full of insight about the various professional career paths that may be available to our Criminal Justice graduates.
Criminal Justice Instructor George Johnson, who is also the head of our North Houston Campus’s Lambda Alpha Epsilon Criminal Justice fraternity, and several fraternity members worked diligently to coordinate activities and book industry professionals to visit the school for this all-day event.
Visitors who attended and spoke with students about their in-field job duties and requirements included a U.S. Marshal, Game Warden, Texas State Trooper, and Texas Ranger. These guests volunteered their time to help inform and motivate students about the opportunities that may await them after graduation.
The following Remington College – North Houston Campus Lambda Alpha Epsilon officers are credited with the success of this Criminal Justice event:
- Omar Caldwell, President
- Myrah Caldwell, Vice President
- Liza Gonzales, Secretary
- Chatoria Washington, Treasurer
- Luz Martinez, Historian
These students work hard to maintain a high level of professionalism, promote the fraternity, and enrich their learning by aiding the Criminal Justice Department with ideas for professional development.
In recent months, the fraternity has taken a field trip to the Texas Prison Museum, in Huntsville, which gave them a glimpse of the history behind Texas’s prison system from the view of the inmates and the men and women who have worked within those walls.
Ms. Treshon Bowie-Burke, one of our North Houston Criminal Justice instructors, is planning a field trip to the Harris County Courthouse to tour its facility in April.
Hats off to our Criminal Justice program at North Houston for creating such wonderful opportunities that open the eyes of many students to several options they may have available if they work hard and stay focused on achieving that important milestone of graduation.
