SEVEN N. C. A&T STATE UNIVERSITY STUDENTS SELECTED TO ATTEND HOFFMAN ESTATES, ILLINOIS

The International Organization of Black Security Executives (IOBSE), has selected seven North Carolina A&T State University students to attend its annual meeting in Hoffman Estates, Illinois on April 18 to April 20.  Students were selected through a rigorous, on-campus interview process.  All student interviewees had to attend a career seminar prior to interviewing.  The following students will receive the all expenses paid trip to the annual meeting: Mr. Karlos Glenn, Mr. Meshach Jackson, Mr. Patrick Jackson, Mr. James G. Smith, Ms. Avery McKoy, Mr. Derrick Bradshaw and Mr. Patrick Mosley.  All of the students are criminal justice majors, except Mr. Mosley who is a political science major. This is the second year the Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice has sent students to the IOBSE annual meeting.

The International Organization of Black Security Executives is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1982. The organization encompasses active members and corporate sponsors within the United States and internationally, including Nigeria and Jamaica. Their professional membership base ranges from entry level managers to Senior Vice Presidents and Chief Security Officers of Fortune 500 corporations. In partnership with its corporate sponsors IOBSE provides eligible students access to a network of security professionals with paid internships and careers. The annual conference is an excellent vehicle to bring students and professionals together to support minority interest in the security field.
