Justice faculty meet with Mat-Su Career & Tech High School students

Students from the justice class at Mat-Su Career and Technical High School in Wasilla met with Justice faculty and toured the Justice Center on Monday, April 18. Mrs. Pepper Thiede, Mat-Su CTHS justice teacher, brought seven students to UAA to familiarize them with the program options at the Justice Center, and also to tour the Department of Biological Sciences cadaver lab.

Dr. Sharon Chamard, Dr. Brad Myrstol, and Dr. Ron Everett, Justice faculty, presented a brief overview of the Justice major and Paralegal Studies Certificate programs, as well as career opportunities for Justice majors. Students and faculty engaged in a question and answer session which touched on school resource officers, the Mat-Su Community Survey, gun laws, community policing, and other topics.
