Residents will each receive a purple shield (or police badge) at the end of this week. This door decoration will represent how the residents have set themselves apart and are held to a higher standard sense they have been chosen to be a resident of the Criminal Justice Living and Learning Community. The badge itself stands for something higher and I hope the residents will take that to heart as they work towards one day wearing one similar to it. The badge stands for Honor, Commitment, Courage, and Integrity. These are all characteristics that these fine young men and women will learn and pick up along their journey through the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Above all the badge and these new members of the CJ LLC are the hope for a brighter and better future and I hope that is the thought they have as they look at these door decorations everyday.
