Young Named "Best in the Business"
Jane Young, director of educational services for the Division of Prisons, is featured as one of the "Best in the Business" in a special June issue of Corrections Today.
"Being honored by the corrections profession was extremely meaningful," said Young. "When I joined the Department I felt I had so much to learn and even with four years experience, I still feel like I have a lot to learn."
Young is one of 17 corrections employees across the nation to receive the honor. A committee of eight people chose those to receive the annual recognition after sifting through thousands of nominations that poured in from all over the country. They were selected for their outstanding professionalism and dedication to their jobs.
Among her many accomplishments, Young was responsible for the $1.5 million federal grant for the development of a plan for providing post-secondary education, employment counseling and the program for exceptional youth which has only been in existence for a couple of years.
Young came to the Department June 1996 from the Governor Morehead School in Raleigh.
