    My name is Chandler Cheeks Sr. and I will be graduating this fall with my bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice at Ferris State University. It has been 17 years since finally reaching this objective. I have been employed with the Michigan Department of Corrections since separating my Junior year in 1993 currently as a Lieutenant/Captain. With a motivated pursuit for a Master's Degree in CJ Administration, I believe the Doctorate Program program is essential in developing successors with real life experience from a student's perspective. This program will assist in identifying current challenges educational institutions will face from a current student's perspective. Institutions with the ability to motivate, influence and assist the new age traditional student's goals will rise to the top of the educational chain of excellence. The current new age traditional student fails to comprehend the significance of an education beyond academics and employment. Identifying how education improves the development of self and sound moral character will one of the most challenging objectives with this program. Upon completion of my Master's Degree I will unhesitantly apply for the Doctorate program myself. I believe in Ferris State University and want to invest into the institution which so greatly invested in me.
