Glenville, WV—On Saturday, April 2, two Glenville State College criminal justice majors traveled to Glen Daniel, West Virginia to visit with a group of Raleigh County high school students who were meeting at Liberty High School for an Institutional Learning Day.
The students of Raleigh County have had so many snow days this winter that they could not have been made up during the normal school week. Therefore, four Saturdays were designated as Institutional Learning Days for the students. A request was made for Glenville State College students to teach some interesting lessons that would draw students to the voluntary make-up day.
Senior Cody Sheldon, of Keyser, West Virginia and junior Andrew Butta of Charleston, West Virginia, represented the GSC criminal justice program and Sigma Pi Xi (an honorary for criminal justice majors). They taught lessons on fingerprinting, foot print casting, and what to do when your motor vehicle is pulled over by law enforcement.
Sheldon and Butta’s presentations were so well received, that the Liberty High School administration asked them to return to teach lessons during spring break activities.
