The Academy of Public Service students at Whites Creek High and the Law Academy students at Cane Ridge High got a lesson from the top this week! The students had the privilege of hearing from Judge Alberto Gonzales, the former highest ranking law enforcement official in the U.S.
Judge Gonzales, the 80th Attorney General of the United States and the first Hispanic U.S. Attorney General, now practices law at Waller in Nashville. He also teaches and holds the position of Doyle Rogers Distinguished Chair of Law at the Belmont University College of Law. He spoke to the students about law and public service and possible careers in those fields.
