During her time at Mount Aloysius, Brenna Wright was a starting libero on the College’s volleyball team. Liberos are valuable members of a volleyball team’s back row defense, and among the best passers on the team. It is perhaps this instinctive defensiveness and protectiveness that helped her find a career as a probation officer.

She took an internship at the Cambria County Prison, where she was able to interact with inmates and other corrections officers. After chatting with one of the institution officers, Brenna was inspired.

“It led me to being a probation officer,” she said.

Brenna credits the Mount with her career success. Everything from the quality of the criminology major to the friendliness and helpfulness of the professors, her experiences helped shape her into who she is now.
