Mount Wachusett Community College students thanked police and other criminal justice community partners from communities including Ayer, Gardner, Greenfield, Lunenburg, Orange, Templeton, and Westminster at a recent recognition luncheon.
At the end of every semester, MWCC hosts a recognition luncheon where participating criminal justice students thank their internship hosts for all they have learned and for the incredible mentoring each has enjoyed. To thank them for providing real-life, career experiences for the students, department chair Reed Hillman presented certificates of appreciation during a gathering at the Gardner campus.
“These fortunate students acquired a wealth of information about how progressive agencies serve their citizens and our students are uniformly grateful for the opportunity they have been provided,” Hillman said.
Police and criminal justice officials throughout the region provided internship opportunities for a number of MWCC Criminal Justice majors during the spring semester. Participating students completed a minimum of 120 hours over the 15-week semester.
