First set of SC inmates to graduate with associate’s degree through Second Chance Initiative

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - "Five inmates at Evans Correctional Institution in Marlboro County will earn their associate’s degrees. It’s South Carolina’s first in-prison graduation through the Second Chance Initiative with the U.S. Department of Education.

About five years ago, Northeastern Technical College and Evans Correctional Institution teamed up to apply for a grant with the U.S. Department of Education. Today, the college is one of only about 65 across the country that’s been approved to take part in this experimental program.

The Second Chance Initiative allows select schools to offer Pell grants to people incarcerated in state or federal prisons, mostly targeting inmates who are likely to be released within five years. Upon completing the application process, Pell grants are provided to cover tuition fees, books and schools supplies. Unlike a loan, grants do not have to be paid back.

The instructors travel to the facility to work with the participants on site."

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
