Presentation to give glance into minds of young criminals

After four years of being presented in sociology and psychology classrooms, Juvenile Crime: Breaking the Cycle will be available as a campus forum for the first time.

The presentation will give students “awareness and deeper understanding of what goes on in the community,” said NE sociology instructor Cheryl North.

A panel of three to six boys and girls between the ages of 13 to 17 will each tell their personal story.

“They’re open to sharing past experiences and what they’ve done on correcting issues,” said North on the panel’s reaction and behavior in recent years.

The presentation from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. April 11 in NSTU 1615 will spark interest, be an eye-opener and hit people in a certain place, North said. It will have students thinking of a possible career, she said.

In recent years, the presentations have been successful, but since this is the first time as a campus forum, North has high hopes.

“The goal is to bring topics for the student body in order to further understanding over juvenile crime and how it goes with society,” she said.
