Central Penn College student appointed to state Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Committee


High school students who wish to launch careers in government may want to enroll in a postsecondary institution that gives students an opportunity to participate in local politics. For example, Central Penn College criminal justice administr´╗┐ation student Anthony Bowles was appointed by Governor Edward G. Rendell to serve on the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Committee for the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, the school reported in a press release.

The committee is responsible for developing a long-range plan and policies for the Commonwealth's juvenile justice system, as well as setting priorities for future projects.

"I think juvenile offenders deserve a chance - an opportunity to better themselves and be educated about the juvenile justice system," Bowles said.

One of Bowles' first tasks as a committee member was to help review and provide recommendations for the annual plan that the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency provides to the Governor. He also attended the Pennsylvania Conference on Juvenile Justice in Harrisburg.

At Central Penn, Bowles was involved as a student ambassador, in the judiciary and activities committees, peer-mentoring and serving as a work-study student in admissions.
