Calhoun's CRIMIMAL JUSTICE PROGRAM Career Fair & Lab Grand Opening

3/2/2012

The Criminal Justice program at Calhoun Community College will host its annual Career Fair, on Thursday, March 8, 2012, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the college’s Huntsville/Cummings Research Park Campus.

According to Criminal Justice instructor and program coordinator Will Culver, the purpose of the career fair is to afford high school and college-age students the opportunity to see, and experience firsthand, the career choices that are available in the criminal justice field and give them information on the training needed for these careers.

“This annual event provides opportunities for law enforcement, governmental and educational agencies and organizations to recruit potential candidates for employment,” Culver said.  “The event is also an opportunity for two-year colleges to recruit high school students and for four-year institutions to recruit students enrolled in high schools and in two-year schools,” Culver added.

A number of local, state, and federal law enforcement and security agencies will participate in the career fair.  The fair is free and open to the public.

Earlier the same week, on Tuesday, March 6, 2012, the college’s Criminal Justice program will conduct a grand opening event for its new Criminal Justice

lab, located in Wallace Hall on the Decatur campus.  The grand opening will be held from 11am – 1pm, and is also open to the public.  A $5000 grant from TVA’s Corporate Contributions fund will provide equipment for the new lab.
