Clare County DNR Officer Jason Mccollugh spoke to the criminal justice students at the Clare-Gladwin Career Center’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program on Dec. 5. Mccollugh discussed the roles and responsibilities of a DNR officer, as well as the education and training the career requires.
“It’s important for the kids to learn first-hand about the numerous careers they can pursue within the criminal justice field,” said CTE Criminal Justice Instructor DJ Newman.”By bringing in guest speakers, it allows the students to ask questions, helps them decide if this line of work is for them, and hopefully guides them into something that they want to do specifically with their lives once they graduate high school.”
The Criminal Justice program is one of nine career and technical education programs offered to local high school juniors and seniors through the Clare-Gladwin Career Center. Students spend half of their school day at their CTE class and the other half at their local high school.
