CALIPATRIA — At the completion of the first full year of in-yard college course instruction, Calipatria State Prison inmates here experienced pride and sense of self determination as they were recognized for successfully completing course work toward an Associate’s Degree in psychology.

More than 150 men in two different programs, here and Centinela State Prison, received certificates of recognition from Imperial Valley College. There are now more than 32 prisons offering face-to-face education. Victor Jamie, IVC superintendent/president, noted 92 percent passed the course in the fall and 88 percent passed in the spring.
