Graduations Celebrated at LaPorte Juvenile Correctional

LaPorte, Ind. - Even with the challenges of the pandemic, staff and teachers at the LaPorte Juvenile Correctional Facility were able to maintain a sense of normalcy for the students residing at the facility.  This included ensuring classes continued as part of the Indiana Testing Assessing Secondary Completion.  This is a high school equivalency program commonly referred to as TASC.

Graduations occurred throughout the early spring and summer in the months of May and June, with the most recent graduation occurring on July 31. 

"There are many reasons to celebrate these graduations", said Jason Smiley, warden of the LaPorte Juvenile Correctional Facility. "First the achievement of each of these young ladies to successfully graduate and also the dedicated teachers and staff that maintained an atmosphere where learning could occur during uncertain times."

Pictured below are three of the seven most recent graduates from the Promise Junior / Senior High School.  Other photos feature some of the recent graduates with facility staff members and teachers.
