Mount Wachusett Community College thanked police and other criminal justice community partners from communities including Ashburnham, Athol, Fitchburg, Gardner, Lancaster, Westminster, and Winchendon 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 that took place on Dec. 20.
Police and criminal justice officials throughout the region provided internship opportunities for a number of MWCC Criminal Justice majors during the fall semester. Participating students completed a minimum of 120 hours over the 15-week semester.
