Sherwood McCabeLILLINGTON Correction Secretary Theodis Beck has named Sherwood McCabe as the new correctional administrator Harnett Correctional Institution.

"Sherwood McCabe has a long history of outstanding service at Central Prison," said Secretary Beck. "With his diverse knowledge and years of experience, I am confident he will make a strong administrator at Harnett."

McCabe is leaving his position as associate warden at Central Prison, where he has spent his entire career.

He was named manager of support services in 1990. In 1994, he was promoted to associate warden for operations.

"It will be like leaving a family at Central Prison, but Im looking forward to meeting the staff at Harnett and working with them to maintain high standards and quality management," said McCabe.

McCabe was born in Coats, but now lives in Johnston County with his wife Lisa. He is a graduate of Four Oaks High School and Kings Business College in Raleigh.

McCabe replaces Martin McDade who retired Aug. 31.
