Last semester, Westminster College inducted its first class of nine students into its newly established chapter of the criminal justice honorary society, Alpha Phi Sigma. Dr. Kristenne Robison and Dr. Shannon Smithey will serve as their advisors. 

"Since moving criminal justice studies to its own major and out of sociology, it was decided criminal justice majors should have their own honorary society," said Robison.

As the group prepares for another academic year, their plans include bringing guest speakers to campus, completing volunteer work, and traveling to an annual conference held in tandem with The Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences conference every winter/spring.

Pictured above are members of the inaugural class:

Third Row: Garrett Behringer, Coty Gander, Dr. Kristenne Robison (advisor)
