The first inmate to graduate from this program was awarded his high school diploma yesterday. He stated, “It was a wonderful program and the teachers really helped. Even after I had all my credits, I looked forward to coming to class even though I didn’t have to.”
After the ceremony Sheriff Bolanos, told the class, “I commend all of you for your courage and willingness to better yourselves. It is not easy to do, especially in a correctional facility. I want you all to know that we fully support you and while in custody we will provide you with the tools to help you be successful.”
