NEIT Criminal Justice Students Bring Home the Gold from the National SkillsUSA Competition

All 4 winnersEAST GREENWICH, RI – Dr. Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology, announced that three students enrolled in the university’s Criminal Justice Technology program earned gold medals in Crime Scene Investigation in the College/Post-Secondary Division at the 52nd SkillsUSA National Competition held in Louisville, Kentucky June 21-24, 2016. The winners were Shelby Mortin of North Kingstown, RI, Stas Belch of West Greenwich, RI, and Mikayla Guarino of Wrentham, MA. These students join the growing list of NEIT Criminal Justice students who have won medals at SkillsUSA National. In 2013, 2014 and 2015, NEIT students have earned medals at this prestigious competition.

More than 6,500 students from across the U.S. competed in 100 occupational and leadership skill competition areas. Rhode Island was well represented with 81 secondary and post-secondary career and technical students with 29 individuals finishing in the Top 10. These industry-driven competitive events are modeled after the Olympics where the top three individuals or teams receive gold, silver, and bronze medals. To compete at the national competition, all students must earn a first place spot at their state-level SkillsUSA competition.

Students must work both against the clock and other competitors demonstrating their expertise in their chosen occupational field. The Crime Scene Investigation competition consists of a skill-related written test as well as hands-on activities. Students must show proficiency in crime scene methodology to include photography, gathering physical evidence, crime scene sketching, dusting a crime scene for collecting latent fingerprints, and releasing a crime scene properly and legally.

New England Tech’s Michael Webb earned a bronze medal in Architectural Design at this year’s competition. All four NEIT students who earned a medal were presented with job offers by industry representatives in attendance.

As Sherman stated, “The New England Tech community is very proud of this year’s Criminal Justice team as well as our other student competitors. NEIT students are encouraged to participate in SkillsUSA as a means to enhance their knowledge and skills as well as leadership and job opportunities. Congratulations to our faculty who work so diligently with our students in preparing them for this well respected competition. ”

2016_Military Friendly_Logo_150x150EAST GREENWICH, RI – New England Institute of Technology announced today that the university has received the Military Friendly® Schools designation joining more than 1400 higher-education institutions in the United States who have been recognized for exhibiting leading practices in recruiting and supporting post-military students.

Developed through more than a decade of research by veteran-owned Victory Media headquartered in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Military Friendly® ratings and resources provide service members and their families with information needed to make decisions about civilian careers and education opportunities.

New England Tech’s data was compiled through Military Friendly® Schools annual survey open to more than 10,000 VA-approved schools nationwide. Each year, schools completing the survey are held to a higher standard than the previous year via improved methodology, criteria, and weightings developed with the assistance of an advisory board. Research findings are compiled and weighted according to the following categories to determine a final score:  academic credibility, support on campus, admissions and orientation, graduation and retention rates, military student body composition, career outcomes, government approvals, tuition assistance, flexibility, and military spouse policies.

Many employers contact the Career Services Office at New England Institute of Technology seeking military and veteran students and NEIT graduates for job opportunities. Patricia Blakemore, Director of Career Services stated, “Our military students and grads are highly prepared for the job market through the education they receive at New England Tech coupled with their military training.   These individuals are a most sought after group of candidates by prospective employers.”

Through NEIT’s Financial Aid Office, a full time VA Coordinator reviews all applicable VA programs and benefits with each military and veteran student and assists with the application process.  “New England Tech honors the Post 911 Bill, the Yellow Ribbon Program, as well as numerous other forms of financial aid that support higher education and personal development of veterans,” stated Anna Kelly, Director of Financial Aid.  “We offer our computer lab to those individuals who wish to complete their application in the Financial Aid Office, and our staff is always available to assist as needed.” Additional information may be found at http://www.neit.edu/Financial-Aid/Veterans-Benefits.
