North Carolina Department of Correction News - July 1999

Letter of thanks from superintendent of Haywood Correctional Center

Regretfully on Sunday, May 9, we lost a friend and co-worker when Correctional Officer James Moody passed away at his home. James was 41 years old and had been with the Department for nine years.

A very large turn-out of staff from other Western Region centers and staff from the region office showed support by attending the funeral service and by working at the center so all of our staff could attend the service. James was a close friend and golfing partner who I will dearly miss but will always remember. I want to thank Lt. Hatley and the Honor Guard for an outstanding service and all the Western Region centers and institutions along with the region office for their support during this sad time. I am proud to be part of a region that shows support and comes together as one during times like this.

Doug Mitchell, Superintendent
Haywood Correctional Center
