Success Story

(2007 graduate)
Patrol Officer & member of the SWAT Team for the Longmont Police
Department in Colorado

“I got to know Christ in a 1-on-1 relationship and people at Tabor helped foster that growth. Seeing the crime and violence we see every day, I always have my faith to get me through it. My relationship with Christ gives me a different perspective, when I’m dealing with people. I try to see them through the eyes of Christ. My experience at Tabor has certainly helped me in my career as a police officer.”
