Twenty-one cadets graduated from the 127th TEEX Basic Peace Officer Academy on Dec. 7, and also gained fame as the eighth TEEX class in a row to pass the state licensing exam on the first try.
Cindi Anderson, program coordinator for the academy, said she was proud of the cadet’s performance, especially in light of the state’s new test requirements and the longer, more challenging exam. The licensing exam is administered by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement Officers Standards and Education (TCLEOSE).
“Apparently, the TEEX class was the only one in the state to have a 100 percent passing rate during the most recent round of tests,” said Anderson, of the Law Enforcement and Security Training Division. “TCLEOSE even called and wanted to know how we did it!”
At the graduation, Officer Andrea Christine Schooler of the Bryan Police Department received an Academic Achievement Award for her 98.18 grade point average and was tapped for the highest class achievement, Honor Cadet.
