Kevin Fruwirth - Criminal Justice
From the Football Field to the Classroom
Kevin Fruwirth '14 is a big man surrounded by little things; children's chairs, toys, building blocks.
Most people on campus probably recognize the 6-foot 2-inch tall Criminal Justice major as the captain of the Curry College football team. But, this semester he's taking on a new role as a work study assistant in the Curry Early Childhood Center.
"I've done a couple of other jobs - I did intramurals and buildings and grounds, but I figured this would be the most rewarding," says Fruwirth. "The kids always have something new to say. It keeps it interesting."
Fruwirth works in a preschool classroom, with children between the ages of 3 and 5. He's an extra set of hands and eyes for the teachers at the CECC.
It might sound simple, but Fruwirth says it can be difficult, especially if the kids begin to bicker.
"You have to mediate them, but have them do it themselves," Fruwirth says. "Like, if they're fighting over a block, I can't just say 'oh you have to give that back.' At this age, you need to have them talk it out."
Helping people mediate disputes could be a useful skill for Fruwirth's next line of work: a police officer.
After graduating, the Agawam, Massachusetts native hopes to work for a local police force, before applying to the Massachusetts State Police Academy.
