Reporters invited to Century Correctional Institution's First Ever Graduation of Inmates from the Residential Therapeutic Substance Abuse Program

Century Correctional Institution Warden Richard Comerford and the staff of the Residential Therapeutic Substance Abuse Program invite reporters to the graduation ceremony 18 inmates who have completed intense substance abuse treatment and training in our Residential Therapeutic Community. This is the first graduating class from this program for Century CI.

This class began on September 7, 2010 with the mission to give these inmates a better chance for success when they are released. In this program, the participants do everything as a group: meals, classroom studies, recreation and housing. 

Graduation will be held at 10:00 am CST, Tuesday, July 19, 2011 in the Chapel at Century CI. Our keynote speaker will be our District 1 House Representative Mr. Doug Broxson. We are looking forward to celebrating the success of the first year of the RTC at Century CI.

Reporters who are interested in attending should contact Communications Director Gretl Plessinger at (850) 488-0420 so that a background check may be done prior to entrance into the facility.
