Former NPTC Student Credits School's
Criminal Justice Program for Preparation

David Hughes, Director of the National Park Technical Center, reported that Jessie Jones, a member of the SkillsUSA Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) team that represented NPTC this past summer by placing first in the state, then tenth in the nation in Kansas City, began her college career this semester at Henderson State University.

Jessie has qualified for admission to the National Intelligence University (NIU) in Washington, DC, and is now on a fast track to a career as a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) analyst. NIU classes include weekends at the NSA (National Security Agency) and DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) headquarters and Ms. Jones's dream of achieving a career in criminal analysis and profiling is rapidly coming true.

Ms. Jones will complete one year at HSU before transferring to the federal degree-granting training program. Initially, she was advised she would need to complete a B.A. degree at HSU to then be eligible to apply for NIU. Scoring a 98% on her analysis qualification test accelerated that process.

"Ms. Jones credits the NPTC Criminal Justice program for preparing her to excel in her chosen field," said James Montgomery, recently-retired instructor for the NPTC Criminal Justice Program. He added, "This success story is an example of the fact that what educators do on a daily basis makes lifelong differences in students' lives."
