Living in Green Bay for a majority of my life, I felt obligated to write this week’s post about the Packers. Most Packer fans would expect to see a player on the field during a game, practicing at the Don Hudson Center, or perhaps out in public. I, personally, would never expect to see a Packer player at the Brown County Courthouse… that is until I recently read an article about just that. This summer, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is interning for Brown County Circuit Court Judge Donald Zuidmulder. Ha Ha has to complete 180 hours of an unpaid internship to receive 6 credits towards completing his criminal justice degree from the University of Alabama. According to the article, Clinton-Dix has said that achieving this degree is not just for him, but for friends and family from his hometown of Orlando, Florida. While completing his internship with Judge Zuidmulder, Clinton-Dix will not be sporting his number 21 jersey or going by “Ha Ha”. “As far as I’m concerned, he’s Ha’Sean Clinton-Dix. He’s Mr. Clinton-Dix. (And) he’ll have a dress code,” said Judge Zuidmulder. The internship will provide Clinton-Dix with insights into the facets of the criminal justice system including the county courts, drug treatment courts, juvenile courts, the district attorney’s office and the sheriff’s department. Next time I head to the courthouse, I definitely will be keeping an eye out for this Packer player.
