Staff Member Recognized as Silent Hero at WVCF

Carlisle, Ind.- Indiana Department of Correction (IDOC) Facilities were challenged by Commissioner Carter to identify the "Silent Heroes" within their agency.  Commissioner Carter defined Silent Heroes as those individuals who work tirelessly to support the Mission of the agency without complaining, or appearing in the spotlight. 

Recently Chaplain Joe Faust was presented the "Silent Hero" award for his work at Wabash Valley Correctional Facility (WVCF).  Chaplain Faust provides spiritual avenues for offenders to pursue their religious beliefs, as well as facilitating cognitive based programs, like Moral Recognition Therapy (MRT).  In addition, he volunteered to instruct Walking the Line, a program that helps offenders manage relationships while incarcerated.  

Deputy Warden Kevin Gilmore stated the following about Chaplain Faust.  "He certainly fits the description of a silent hero.  He does the right thing without seeking personal recognition."
