The Grambling State University student chapter of the National Association of Blacks in Criminal Justice will receive the 2015 Presidential Citation at the 42nd Annual Conference and Training Institute. The award will be presented during the July 19-23 National conference in Phoenix.
The Grambling State University NABCJ Student Chapter has been selected for the citation because it is the largest student chapter in the association.
“We commend all of you for your outstanding chapter development and leadership by increasing the membership of the Grambling Chapter and the development of chapter programs and activities,” said Carlyle I. Holder, national NABCJ president.
“It is an honor to be recognized as the largest, most active student chapter in the country,” said adviser Dr. Joyce Montgomery-Scott.
“Last year we were the third-largest group. That shows that dedication and hard work pays off.”
Dr. Mahendra Singh, GSU Criminal Justice Department head, said, “I am elated and delighted to receive word that Grambling will receive this award.”
“I am very thankful to the student chapter, faculty and the support of Grambling State University. Now we are the largest department on campus and in the state of Louisiana,” Dr. Singh said.
NABCJ is a multi-ethnic, nonprofit, nonpartisan association of criminal justice professionals dedicated to improving the administration of justice.
