"Charleston Hartfield was an exemplary student and a wonderful person. We communicated frequently regarding his online classes and he was always the first student to reply to any request for volunteer work in the community. We first met (face-to-face) at the 2012 Goodie Two Shoes Rockin’ Walk. I was struck by how excited and dedicated he was to mentoring youth in the Las Vegas area. He gave so much to his country through his military service, to the Las Vegas area through his employment with Metro, and to me by giving insight into crime and criminal justice issues in the Valley. When a supervisor requested a student to highlight for graduation, I knew exactly who to recommend. Although his story was not selected, I again proposed Charleston for a photo shoot and feature on successful NSC alumni. He was chosen and has a feature on the “Choose Success” section of our website. I cannot say enough good things about this man and send my sincerest condolences to his family and his brothers and sisters in the military and at Metro. Thank you for your dedication and your service. We will never forget you." --Lance R. Hignite, Ph.D.
