(KETK) Henderson Tx — Jail, it's where convicted criminals go to pay for their crimes against society, but once that debt is paid, many are lost about where to go next.
Well on Friday, more 100 inmates at Bradshaw State Jail in Henderson took the first steps to making the most of their time behind bars.
These inmates completed their course work for the Institute of Basic Life Principles, a faith based program.
And on Friday afternoon, they received their diplomas, in front of their friends and family, becoming something more than just inmate, but graduates.
A new title, which brings with it responsibility.that many inmates say, they are now ready to live up to.
