Amy-Nicole C. Dunham
Evening Undergraduate Grad ’15
I am from Columbia, South Carolina, and I earned my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice with The Citadel’s 2 + 2 Program. I am currently working as an agent at South Carolina Department of Probation, Parole, and Pardons. I started this job in December 2015, and before that I was working at Anderson County Sheriff’s Office as a 911 dispatcher for several months after my internship with Anderson County Sheriff's Office Emergency Services.
What is your favorite memory from The Citadel?
I would have to say that my favorite memory from The Citadel is when I helped one of my professors, Ed Lugo, with the Leadership Symposium in 2015. I helped him with a presentation titled, “Crime Scene Reconstruction: How Ferguson Missouri became a Crucible in Public Service Leadership.” I believe the breakdown of the scientific evidence was a great real-life, relevant example compared to just reading the documents and watching the news on TV. For someone looking to go into law enforcement upon graduating, it was a very rewarding academic experience.
What about your time at The Citadel had the most positive impact on your career or life?
The professors had the biggest impact on me. I cannot say one bad thing about any of my professors; they consistently pushed me to do my best and never gave up on me. All of my professors were well educated and experienced in the criminal justice field, which pushed me to do my best in hopes of becoming as accomplished as them.
