jpeg of Jared DeFlippo and Ed Pocock Jared DeFlippo, a freshman from Middlefield, Connecticut, has been named as the first recipient of the J. Allen Lamb & Edward S. Pocock III Foundation Criminal Justice Scholar for the 2016-17 academic year.   Jared was selected through a competitive process coordinated by the Dean’s Office of the College of Arts and Sciences for applicants seeking acceptance to the College and majoring in Criminal Justice.  Since exposure to criminal justice professionals is considered an integral part of the Scholars Program, Jared will participate in up to 10 hours per week of directed volunteer activity at the Southern Police Institute.  

Lamb/Pocock Foundation Director, Edward S.
