SCI Greene held a Day of Responsibility and welcomed guest speakers David and Mary Neese and Carol Michaud on Oct. 19.

David and Mary's daughter, and Carol's niece, Skylar, was 16 years old and was missing for six months. When her remains were discovered it was learned that Skylar was murdered by two of her "best" friends who lured her out of the house to go for a joyride and then stabbed her to death.

Now, the family's mission is to visit schools and prisons to keep Skylar's memory alive by sharing their story through "Skylar's Promise." They try and help others understand the consequences of their actions affect many individuals, not just the victim.

The family also collects flags from countries to signify each area that the memory of their daughter has traveled. Superintendent Robert Gilmore presented the family with a Pennsylvania Department of Corrections Flag.

David and Mary know that their efforts continue to make a positive impact and this has helped ease their pain.

Both friends pled guilty to the murder and are serving prison sentences at Lakin Correctional Center in West Virginia.
