Rocklin College Student Recipient of God and Governing Award
ROCKLIN, CALIFORNIA - Megan Crutchfield, 21, a senior at William Jessup University's School of Public Policy in Rocklin, is the recipient of Trinity Law School's 2014 God and Governing Award for her thesis project, "One Size Doesn't Fit All: Reforming Megan's Law."
The God and Governing Award, named for Trinity Law School's conference on virtue, ethics, and statesmanship of the same name, is presented to a graduating senior in the William Jessup University School of Public Policy who demonstrates an exemplary understanding of current global or national issues and presents solutions to such problems that are innovative, realistic, and promote Christian values and beliefs. The winner is determined through evaluation of their thesis paper, presentation, and defense, which took place during William Jessup University's 9th Annual Public Policy Lecture Series on May 6 and 7.
"I'm passionate about Criminal Justice and wanted to learn more about Megan's Law following a paper I wrote last year about it," Crutchfield stated. She also cited her internship with the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department in Martinez, California as a source of her interest in the topic.
Crutchfield received a $2,000 cash prize at the ceremony on Wednesday night. Should Crutchfield choose to attend Trinity Law School in the future, she will receive an additional $2,000 and a renewable 50% scholarship towards annual tuition.
A native of Lodi, California, Crutchfield will be graduating on May 17 with her bachelor's degree in Public Policy with a concentration in Criminal Justice. Following graduation, she will be returning to Lodi to pursue a career in law enforcement.
