June into July was a busy period, as usual, for the Nashville Criminal Justice Department and the ACJA’s Lambda Alpha Epsilon (LAE) fraternity on Campus.

On June 2, 2014, Lead Instructor Tom Essary was a guest speaker for “Safety Week” at the local Kroger’s Stores, where he discussed safety issues and communication techniques.

On June 9, the LAE’s Beta Nu Alpha (BNA) chapter members Ken Rohlf, Amber Dunkin, Ginger Clemence (Alum), Barbara Sanit, Laura Conley, and Jacob Morse participated in a clothing and toy donation for the AMVETS group in Nashville, which aids military veterans and servicemen and women in the area. In total, the group donated 11 bags of clothing and toys to help the Nashville community. “Several of our Nashville students are service veterans, and this is a favorite charity,” noted Mr. Essary.

On June 12, the LAE group donated several hundred books and magazines to the Nashville Union Mission’s reading program. This program assists the mission in helping people re-enter the mainstream with new skills that can help them gain a fresh perspective and pursue new possibilities.

The last week of June saw our students making another large donation of clothing and personal items to the Men’s Union Mission. The mission serves several hundred men in the area who are homeless, unemployed, and in need of social services. The Nashville Rescue Mission is the parent organization of the Union Mission and its outreach efforts, including the reading program and the men’s union.

In July, the LAE group set up shop at a local K-Mart in June and distributed more than 50 child fingerprint ID kits to parents.

We at Today certainly agree, and to Mr. Essary’s sentiment we add our kudos and applaud our Nashville Criminal Justice group for their continued great and generous service to those in need in the local area.

All of our Nashville Criminal Justice students are currently working toward planning the August 5 National Night Out Against Crime event that is taking place at the Nashville Campus.
