Cedar Valley student and future hopeful attorney

“I’ve always been interested in how things work in the criminal justice system and I found my first classes in Sarita Stewart’s Criminal Justice classes incredibly interesting. The laws and definitions just make sense to me. I want to keep my GPA as high as humanly possible, take the LSAT and get into a good law school. I’d like to practice criminal law. I like a challenge and I’ve always been good at negotiation.

“I was able to take advantage of having my full tuition paid for because my dad is 100% disabled as a Vietnam war veteran. My experience at Cedar Valley has been fantastic. I like the teacher-to-student ratio, because you get to know the teachers and they work with you; that’s a huge benefit. I’m glad I started out at community college. Besides, you save a ton of money.”

Chase Gravis is earning an associate degree in Criminal Justice at Cedar Valley and hopes to continue his education to earn a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at UNT. He is a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the academic honor society for students in two-year colleges.
