Happy New Year 2014…Feliz Ano Nuevo 2014!!
We are up to a fast start this year. We find ourselves extremely busy, yet we take the time to time to recognize a few young people preparing for a career in Criminal Justice.
NOHCJ hosted a “Scholarship” Reception in conjunction with the American Correctional Association’s Winter Conference in Tampa, Florida, on Monday, February 3, 2014. First, NOHCJ would like to express our greatest gratitude to the co-sponsors of the reception:
KEEFE GROUP, represented by Mr. Tim McAteer, President, GM of ICSolutions, and Mr. Brendan Philbin, Vice President of Business Development; and ARAMARK CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, represented by Mr. Eddie Noriega, Director of Business Development Correctional Services, and Mr. Glenn Hamlett, District Manager, West Region, Correctional Services.
KEEFE GROUP sponsored the food, and ARAMARK CORRECTIONAL SERVICES, sponsored the beverages. Please go to the 2014 Events section on our website to view photos taken during the reception.
Most importantly, the primary purpose of the reception was to present and award three (3), $500 Academic Scholarships to students pursuing a college degree in the field of criminal justice. The scholarship award winners include the following recipients:
1) Emily Jaso, Master’s Degree Student at Sam Houston State University and employed by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice as a Corrections Officer
2) Victoria Cisneros, Student at South Plains College
3) Daniel Pinto, Applicant to Stetson University of Law
The scholarship initiative is as a result of contributions received from the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the New Mexico Women in Corrections Organization and dedicated for scholarships. Additionally, the New Mexico Women in Corrections Organization dedicated funds require the following criteria: (1) The candidate must be a female currently employed in the field of Criminal Justice, (2) The student is majoring in Criminal Justice, (3) A financial need must exist, and (4) The student’s GPA is a 3.0 or better. The recipient of this award is Ms. Jaso.
Again, we are most grateful is KEEFE GROUP, an ongoing supporter of NOHCJ since the creation of NOHCJ in 2003, and to a new supporter, ARAMARK CORRECTIONAL SERVICES. The NOHCJ reception would not have been a success, nor could we have given the proper announcement to this year’s scholarship recipients without our sponsors.
