WSCC September Student of the Month
Posted on: 09/12/2017
Washington State Community College has announced it's Student of the Month for the month of September. While there are those who run away from danger upon seeing it, Jessica Knick couldn't imagine running in any other direction except towards the problem. We recently spoke with Knick herself about her story, her achievement and her plans for the future.
Knick is a Criminal Justice-Law Enforcement major. It's a career path she's wanted to pursue since she was very young. A former corrections officer at St. Mary's Prison and the Lorrie Yeager Jr. Juvenile Center, Knick originally planned to become a police officer but had to face the harsh reality, after witnessing a gruesome car accident, that a career in law enforcement isn't always pleasant.
Despite not wanting to see death, she describes herself as someone who, in the face of adversity, runs towards trouble. Following her December graduation, Knick is undecided about her future. She's currently weighing her options to further her education or go directly into a law enforcement career as a case manager.
For more information about Knick and her goals, or if you'd like to nomination someone as Washington State's Student of the Month, contact the college's Communications Support Specialist Miss Richman at (740) 885-5710.
