ATC Criminal Justice Students Win at Job Skills Championships


web posted April 15, 2011

AIKEN – A team of ATC criminal justice students took top honors at the South Carolina SkillsUSA Championships on April 1 in Greenville, S.C. SkillsUSA is a national partnership of high schools, colleges and industry professionals aimed at building America’s skilled workforce. SkillsUSA competitions challenge students from multiple disciplines through written and hands-on scenario tests. ATC participated in the college portion, competing against other South Carolina technical colleges.

ATC criminal justice students finished on top in several categories. Richard Sullivan won the criminal justice contest, where he excelled in assessing a domestic violence scenario. The team of Joshua Tuper, Amanda Whaley and Allison Huff won the crime scene investigation competition, where they did the best job of assessing a kidnapping scene. Jasen Cumbee showed judges how to handle a dangerous suspect during a felony traffic stop, earning him the top prize for job skill demonstration.

These students all qualified for the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City, Mo., June 19-24.

Khadija Hudson placed second in job skill demonstration, wowing judges by showing how to collect blood as evidence at a crime scene. Louis Hale rounded the top three in job skill demonstration with his presentation of law enforcement defensive tactics.

The Aiken Department of Public Safety helped prepare ATC students for the competition. Capt. Ray Scott and Sgt. Karl Odenthal provided free weekly scenario training from January through March, allowing students to use their criminal labs, police cars, evidence collection kits and other police equipment.
“We value the support the Aiken Department of Public Safety has provided for our criminal justice program,” said Dr. Wayne Davis, criminal justice academic coordinator at ATC. “They are a big part of our students’ success.”
