By: Mary Ann Cozza

Students in Judith Harris’ Criminal Justice Senior Seminar were treated to a classroom visit and talk by Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia on Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Garcia is the second in a list of area criminal justice and political science professionals Harris has tapped to visit her class and share expertise and advice with senior students.

“It was so great to meet Adrian Garcia in person and his talk really reinforced my passion in criminal justice,” said Nicole Moser, senior criminal justice student.

According to Moser, Garcia spoke about reforms he has made while in office, his opinion on Houston’s gang situation and other similar topics.

The first speaker to visit the class was Marilyn McShane, UHD professor of criminal justice.
