The ceremony will take place in Room 1505 of the Turlington Building at 325 W. Gaines St. in Tallahassee. The tapes symbolize the statewide distribution of the educational videos to all community colleges and universities. The programs show "a day in the life" of several Corrections and Probation Officers.

The ceremony highlights the student volunteer/intern and employment opportunities with the Department of Corrections, part of the existing partnership DC has with Florida's community colleges and universities. The Department of Corrections is the workplace of many student volunteers and interns.
