April Bennett

April Bennett


April Bennett will be graduating in May with a Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.  She will not be leaving UTC however, staying to earn her Master’s degree in criminal justice.  She wants to someday earn a Doctor of Philosophy in Criminology.  She would like to research more effective tools for law enforcement and to further explore the ethics involved in her field.  April is a proud Army wife and performed “Taps” beautifully at UTC’s military tribute football game this past November.
