SCI Mercer Superintendent Melinda Adams, along with Deputy Superintendent William Woods and Major Paul Brocklehurst, recognized Corrections Officer Thomas M. Corcoran for his decisive actions on Oct. 24 in stopping a bank robbery. Corcoran was presented with a certificate of recognition and an SCI Mercer challenge coin.

Corcoran displayed courage and bravery in the face of adversity, protecting innocent civilians and preventing a bank robbery at a local PNC bank in Neshannock Township, Lawrence County, Pa.

Adams expressed to Corcoran that the competence and character that he displayed reflected greatly credit upon himself, SCI Mercer and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.

Corcoran stated that it was a surreal moment and that now his daughter thinks of him as a superhero.
