The School of Criminal Justice graduates take the knowledge they've learned within their programs and apply it to their desired careers. We acknowledge our alumni for their efforts and hope it continues to inspire our current and prospective students. 

Newly elected Hamilton County Sheriff, Charmaine McGuffey, graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from CECH in 1988. She recently participated in a Lunch-n-Learn for Women's History Month through our Be Historic campaign and discussed her journey throughout her career, overlooked entry-level jobs for new college graduates, other careers within criminal justice, and the importance of working hard. 

Congratulations to our alumni on their accomplishments!
