  • Madison Hale knew her path from the moment she arrived at WCU - criminal justice. Knowledgeable and encouraging professors and an internship with Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office confirmed and reinforced her passion. And through her experience, she always came back to the same thought, criminal justice wasn’t something she was getting into for money, “What’s most important to me is doing something I’ll love for the rest of my life,” said Madison.

    Now that she’s graduated, she’s headed to hike all 2,190 miles of the Appalachian Trail with her brother and get experience in her field.
