Kennedy Fitzgerald

Crime & Justice Studies
Recognition Year: 

Kennedy Fitzgerald graduated Spring 2021 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Crime and Justice Studies and a minor in Psychology. She transferred from Bowling Green University to Wright State in the fall of 2018. Kennedy believes that over the past couple of years, the CJS program has opened her eyes to understanding more about the criminal justice system. As such, she wants to help make a difference in any way she can. The pandemic prevented her and other students from having an internship, and lead to going to school full-time online. Kennedy is very thankful to the WSU CJS professors who pushed her and encouraged her to look outside the box for answers, even during these trying times. These challenges forced her to invest her time into working with children. Moreover, she had to adjust to the “pandemic” norms of wearing a face shield and mask while trying to help kids adjust to the same changes.

Kennedy’s long-term goal is to work for the federal government with a special agency, such as the FBI or The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She has worked full time while going to school the past three years, which she believes has helped to build her work ethic as well as prepare her for life after graduation. Kennedy is very thankful to God, family and friends for pushing and supporting her to find her inner strength to persevere! Congratulations Kennedy!
