The LHS Criminal Justice Department would like to congratulate Sam Burton.
Sam is being recognized not only for his outstanding work within the Criminal Justice Program here at LHS, but also for receiving a conditional offer for employment from a law enforcement agency in the State of Tennessee. After graduation, pending successful completion of the official hiring process, Sam will be employed and begin his Criminal Justice career here in Tennessee. Sam also plans to continue his post-secondary education while employed.
While in high school, Sam’s chosen elective focus was Criminal Justice and he has completed all four levels of Criminal Justice here at LHS, including the capstone course that involves spending a semester in a job shadow placement. Sam is also a member of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Department Explorers program where he holds the rank of Sergeant. Sam’s dedication to the Criminal Justice program as well as his outstanding work ethic and professionalism are what set him apart from not only his peers but also other law enforcement applicants.
