OWOSSO — Recently, the Shiawassee Regional Education Service District’s Countywide Career and Technical Education students, who are in the Criminal Justice II Program, participated in the Black History Month Expo at Baker College of Owosso.
The high school students selected two blacks working in criminal justice who have had an impact in American history. The students had to conduct research and develop an interactive component.
The two groups selected Bass Reeves, who was the first black U.S. marshal in the late 1800s and Lee Roy Young, who was the first black Texas Ranger, commissioned in 1988. The students made presentations through the use of visual aids, quizzes and games.
