Students Recognized at Criminal Justice Conference, Competition

Seven justice systems students participated in the American Criminal Justice Association/Lambda Alpha Epsilon national conference and competition March 20-26.

Scott Chenault, instructor in justice systems, led the group to Memphis, Tenn., where they networked with other students and professionals from across the country in the field of criminal justice. As a part of the conference, the team competed against about 85 schools from across the nation in a series of criminal justice-related challenges.

Truman students finished fifth in the nation overall, garnering a handful of individual academic awards in the process. In addition, Truman students competed in a student paper competition off-site and the results were announced at the conference. The group earned a “sweep” of the three awards given in the lower collegiate division. This was the first time in the history of the competition that one student had placed twice in a paper competition.
