Operation Field Trip

Field trips give students the opportunity to see the realities of a profession or industry and the connections between learning and the real world. Criminal Justice students from Stratford STEM Magnet High School's Academy National Safety and Security Technologies participated in a field trip this month of the Davidson County Criminal Justice Center. In this post, Mr. Stephens documents their experience.

Criminal Justice I students successfully completed their field trip mission to the Davidson County Criminal Justice Center. Students were accompanied by Academy Principal Merkerson and their teacher, Mr. Stephens.  This unique opportunity was facilitated by Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall, Ms. Earl, Lt. DeMoss, Sgt. Foley, and Mr. Pressler. Students discovered that Lt. DeMoss was a graduate of Stratford High School and so was his father! Lt. DeMoss volunteered to attend the Stratford Career Day later this month and is looking forward to touring the school and seeing the progress of the renovation.
