Jeff Smith ’21

Online Criminal Justice

Occupation: Police Department Sergeant for Greer, SC

Success Jeff SmithSo, you think you’re too old to learn? Just ask Greer Police Department Sergeant Jeffrey Smith, who has worked in law enforcement for over 27 years. “Taking courses online provided me the opportunity to further my education, where otherwise, I may not have had the time with traditional classes. The online program is ideal for me since I work full-time and have a family. There are sufficient courses available, and it allows me to manage my own time by completing the assignments on my schedule.”

Sgt. Smith does not plan to stop anytime soon. After earning his bachelor’s degree, he intends to begin work on his master’s degree to be able to teach when he retires from law enforcement. “For anyone feeling that it is too late to go back to school, I can only encourage them by saying that I had been out of school for 23 years before going back.”
