"Being honored as a 2008-2009 recipient of the Griffith and Shell Scholarships was one of the greatest highlights of my freshman year at UW.  It was a rewarding feeling to know that alumni of this program are so supportive of the great department that is Criminal Justice.  I am thrilled to carry on the legacy that so many wonderful people have developed at the University of Wyoming."
