On Jan. 23, SCI Waymart hosted a Certified Peer Specialist (CPS) Graduation ceremony for their successful class of 15. In attendance were Waymart's administration, treatment staff, education staff, existing CPS team, Gina Calhoun of The Copeland Center and our two new CPS puppies, Bella and Buddy. Kait Simon, SCI Waymart's CPS supervisor, conducted the ceremony, and Principal Michelle Lipko gave an uplifting speech. This class served as the inaugural participants in the DOC's new CPS curriculum, designed by The Copeland Center. They will also be the first class to sit for the Pennsylvania Certification Board Exam. Waymart now has 33 Certified Peer Support Specialists helping throughout the institution!
