Dr. Nell Senter, Ph.D., J.D., M.S.W, Dean of Social and Behavioral Sciences; and Professor of Philosophy for Jackson State Community College thanked local LHS instructor Thomas Cepparulo for being “willing to serve on the official Advisory Committee for our new Criminal Justice A.A.S. degree program.” “We are thrilled to finally have this two-year degree option for those already in Law Enforcement/ Corrections who wish to advance in their careers and college students who wish to join the workforce as soon as possible rather than transfer to a Baccalaureate institution before entering Law Enforcement.” Cepparulo will not only help students but give advice on how best to reach those already working in Law Enforcement. Additionally, he may be the only teacher in Tennessee that received this honor. He is a CTE (Career Technical Education) teacher at Lexington High School, teaching Criminal Justice.
