Lots of high school classes feature expert guest speakers. They don't all include a workout buddy.
One of CTE Criminal Justice Instructor Jeff Erickson's former students, Cpl. Lane Matthews, was on hand Friday to share stories of his career as a Marine, as an officer in the Military Police, and as a former Criminal Justice student himself not that long ago. Matthews is considering a career as a state trooper after the military.
The classroom session was highlighted with a hearty give and take in the Q&A portion.
The capper came during the afternoon session, when Matthews joined Erickson and his group for Physical Training, which students in the class do two or three times per week. Matthews led students in running, stretching and calisthenics. Check out the photo gallery.
