FOUR ADULT CORRECTIONAL FACILITIES
ACHIEVE ACCREDITATION  

Posted: May 24, 2007
The West Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Institutional Education Programs has long been recognized nationally as a leader in correctional education.

That status was demonstrated, once again, as four of the adult facilities underwent the rigorous audit process for accreditation by the Correctional Education Association (CEA).  

On May 14, 2007, Pruntytown Correctional Center had their initial CEA audit. The outcome was an impressive score of 100% compliance. Congratulations to Rocky Marino and his staff for their commitment to excellence.  

On May 15, May 21, and May 22, 2007, respectively, Northern Correctional Facility, Mount Olive Correctional Complex and Huttonsville Correctional Center all underwent their three-year CEA re-accreditation audits. Once again, all three facilities were awarded a score of 100% compliance. For each of these three facilities, this is the fourth time they have achieved and maintained this exemplary level of service. Congratulations to Mount Olive Lead Teacher Kathryn Toler and her staff, Huttonsville Lead Teacher Kenny Holbrook and his staff, and Northern Correctional Facility Lead Teacher Jeanette Donohew and her staff. They, too, have consistently demonstrated the commitment to the vision and mission of the Office of Institutional Education Programs in an unparalleled fashion.
