On February 26, 2020, the Scott County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of River Valley Resources graduated nine students with their G.E.D. that was obtained over the last several months.
This is part of the continuing plan by Sheriff Jerry Goodin to educate, job train and rehabilitate inmates when they enter the Scott County Jail.
With the skills that they obtained they can better assimilate back into our communities.
The nine graduates are Kyle Cox, William Miller, Logan Roger, Whitney Stacy, Jimmy Storms, Tommy Akers, Devon Howard, Justin Turpin, and Cody Williams.
Of the nine graduates, five were able to attend the graduation ceremony held in the Scott County Circuit Court. Justin Turpin also received his safe food handling certification.
Sheriff Goodin would like to give a special thanks to River Valley Resources for providing the teacher and material needed to make this happen.
