Los Fresnos HS Law Enforcement Team Advances to State

The Los Fresnos High School Falcon Law team will advance twenty-three students to the Texas Public Safety Association State Conference. The students competed at the Southwest Regional competition in La Feria. They were awarded medals for their top three performances in eighteen events over five divisions.
Falcon Law is one of 13 Career and Technical Student Organizations available as part of the Los Fresnos CISD CTE department. Under the LFHS/LFU Law Enforcement Program of Study, students receive first-hand experience with what is needed to work in the criminal justice field. Students are able to earn industry-based certifications that will help them be prepared for post-secondary opportunities and become college and career ready.

“We are not only serving our community, we are building it by producing future leaders,” said Sherrell Quintero, instructor and sponsor for Falcon Law and Law Enforcement at LFHS/LFU.
