It was a proud day at SCI Greene for the annual Inmate Graduation Ceremony on Oct. 17.

The theme was "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream." The class of 2018 graduated 92 students with GED's, commonwealth secondary diplomas, HVAC, building trades and business education certifications as well as a PA Barber Licensure.

Forty family members attended the ceremony, and recognition was given to the classroom tutors. Special thanks to many departments for their assistance with the ceremony preparations.

Special appreciation was expressed to this year's keynote speaker, Eric McElvenney. Eric served as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps and deployed three times as a Marine. On his final tour he was wounded during combat action by an improvised explosive device, which resulted in the amputation of his right leg. He now competes in endurance racing events across the country, and he travels across the country to speak, inspire and motivate others to grow and embrace their challenges.
