Members of local retired school personnel from Hopkins and Rains counties plan to meet on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 to hear an informative presentation by Dr. Millie Nylan detailing her work with inmates at the Hopkins County Jail. The program starts at 10:00 am and will be presented at The ROC located at 115 Putman St. in Sulphur Springs.
Her work is a local initiative, focused on teaching inmates the educational skills they need in working toward the GED exam. Dr. Nylan proposed the program, which began in 2017 with approval of the Hopkins County Sheriff.
Dr. Nylan works with inmates 4 days a week to help them attain skills they currently lack. The program includes fascinating facts about the mindset of those incarcerated.
Several of our members in the Hopkins-Rains RSP have heard Dr. Nylan’s program in other settings. They tell us her information is interesting, inspirational, and not to be missed!
