I always enjoy graduations. They are special events. Prison graduations are even more special. They represent redemption, hope, deliverance, and rebuilding. They also represent a bargain for taxpayers. Most offenders come home. We all benefit when they come home equipped to reenter society, find a job, support their families, pay taxes, etc. I’m extremely proud of the work I’ve done to reinvent Career, Technical, and Post-Secondary education in Georgia’s prisons. The photo above is of me accepting a model forklift after speaking to graduates. We produced certificated graduates in Welding, Diesel Mechanics, Forklift Operation, and Carpentry.
