Granite State High School Inmate Graduation Ceremony Recognizes Twelve

(Concord, N.H.) The New Hampshire Department of Corrections announces that twelve inmates at the New Hampshire State Prison for Men in Concord received their diplomas today during the 2011 Granite State High School commencement exercise. This was the largest class ever. Commissioner William L. Wrenn congratulated the offenders and awarded them their diplomas.

The Corrections Special School District is a fully functioning high school that is run at the Concord facility through the Bureau of Programs. The inmates receive their diplomas after completing the required number of classes and credits like in any New Hampshire public high school.

“Obtaining a high school diploma is a significant accomplishment for each of these men and one that will play an important part in helping them to be successful when they are released from prison,” Commissioner Wrenn said.

Eleven of the twelve inmates were in attendance for the graduation ceremony. One of the graduates was paroled earlier this year.
