The Christian County LEAD Program is in the middle of their 2018 class, and the group of area leaders recently took a tour of the Taylorville Correctional Center.
Linda Smith is the coordinator of the Christian County LEAD Program. She says members of the class got to see the business functions and opportunities for prisoners at Taylorville’s facility.
Smith says visiting the prison is just a piece of giving LEAD Program participants a bigger picture look at Christian County.
Smith says although the program is designed for people new to Christian County, many people participate more than one time, and the class is designed to always have fresh information and opportunities.
