Pomp and Circumstance: Tennessee Prisoners Earn Degrees Behind Bars
Stephanie Carson, Public News Service
More than 20 male prisoners in Tennessee recently celebrated the completion of the associate degrees they earned while behind bars. It's the first such group to receive the honor in more than 20 years.
The inmates will graduate at the Turney Center Industrial Complex as part of a program with Nashville State Community College that's coordinated by the Tennessee Higher Education Initiative.
