CRC's Annual Graduation

CRC's Annual Graduation

The Correctional Reception Center held its annual graduation program. Graduates, family and friends joined together to celebrate the academic accomplishments of High School and GED graduates.Also recognized were the accomplishments for Apprenticeship program completers, C-Tech, tutors and ABE/Pre-GED programs.This was the first graduation including the youthful offenders completing their high school diploma.

One of CRC’s Education Staff, Jennifer Fornal, Intervention Specialist at CRC is passionate about her career in correctional education.

“Graduation is one of the best times of the year for me as a correctional educator.  It is a chance to celebrate the students hard work and effort.  I enjoy meeting the families that have supported them on their journeys when they come to our graduation ceremony. It is time to reflect at the positive accomplishments of our students and why we as correctional educators work to help rehabilitate offenders and hopefully make a positive impact on them and their families. Graduating with a high school diploma or GED means the student has mastered knowledge, testing, and showing up on time and doing the work.  It means they have put in effort to learn.  Hopefully they have developed a love to learn and will continue to learn in all they do.”
