We have received many letters and continue to see more come in. The responses have been fairly well-rounded with a range of positive, negative, and neutral tones. We want to share with you a letter we received from Jacob. Jacob is a licensed electrician that resides at Two Rivers Correctional Institution and works in the OCE shops there. Jacob is humble and thankful to have applicable training and money to provide gifts for his family. He wants people to know how many great programs AIC awards contribute to. His last name has been redacted for considerations of safety and sensitivity. What he has to say in the following letter is real and in his own words.
George started his path to prison early in life. Growing up with divorced parents who did not establish boundaries, he didn't take life seriously or participate in what he calls a manners education. He completed high school and went on to attend a welding trade school, but he had already become involved with the wrong crowd. When he felt taken advantage of, he would retaliate.
