Caledonia prison has new superintendent

 Grady Massey

TILLERY - Grady L. Massey, a 28-year corrections veteran, has been named the new superintendent at Caledonia Correctional Institution.

 Formerly the prisonís assistant superintendent for custody and operations, Massey succeeds the retired Lawrence Solomon.

 As superintendent, Massey is responsible for all of the facilities and operations at Caledonia Correctional, including approximately 560 minimum and medium custody inmates and 340 officers and staff. Caledonia houses many long-term offenders and inmates who have difficulty adjusting to incarceration. The corrections staff works to maintain security while preparing inmates for their eventual move to another prison.

Prior to being named assistant superintendent in 2007, Massey had earned his way up through the ranks, mostly at Caledonia Correctional, beginning in 1981. From 1997 to 2000, he was a captain at Warren Correctional Institution.

 A Halifax County native, Massey graduated from Northwest High School in Roanoke Rapids and has studied business administration at Halifax Community College. He has attended the Department of Correctionís Management Effective Performance Training Program and was a member of the Prison Emergency Response Team.

 Massey likes to ride his motorcycle, walk and listen to music, and he is a fan of college basketball and NASCAR.
