Congratulations Alpha Phi Sigma for Success at the ACJS Conference!


Members of Alpha Phi Sigma, the criminal justice honor society, attended the annual conference held in National Harbor, Maryland during spring break. The APS conference is held during the annual ACJS conference. Students from EKU competed in a variety of categories (knowledge test, crime scene investigation, and college bowl) against colleges from all over the country and Canada. They also prepared presentations on the theme of the year (police reform), leadership, unity, and service. Those presentations highlighted the APS activities the EKU chapter performed leading up to the conference. Students were also able to participate in a competitive scholarship process.
