5 LCF Residents Graduate from University of Saint Mary
by David Thompson published May 16, 2024 last modified May 17, 2024 07:30 AM
Five residents at Lansing Correctional Facility earned bachelor's degree in computer information science. A noteworthy accomplishment in and of itself. However, two of the residents, William Mason and Charles Johnson Jr. began taking college courses through University of Saint Mary using Pell grants back in 1991 and 1994, respectively. They had to stop when Pell ended in 1994. Yet, here they are, 30 years later and after Pell grants were reinstituted in 2021, Mason and Johnson Jr. received their degrees during a graduation ceremony at LCF last week. Our congratulations to Mason, Johnson Jr., as well as Sean Murphy, Danny Pickerill, and Zachary Smith. Awesome job! And congratulations to the faculty and staff at the University of Saint Mary, i.e. Michael Hill and Dr. Michelle Metzinger. And thank you to the staff at Lansing Correctional Facility for supporting the educational programs and activities to help enhance the growth of residents who want to change.
