Deborah King to Speak at Sago Palm Re-entry Center's Commencement Ceremony
As correction facilities may not always be viewed as a place of hope for many, the Community Education Center Intensive Outpatient Program Sago Palm Re-Entry Center opened by the Florida Department of Corrections, is just the ticket that several of the internees need in order to move forward with their lives.
Coretha Smith, M.ED, MBA, MCAP, ICADC, Intensive Outpatient Director, and staff provide residents with the necessary tools needed to better prepare individuals for a brighter future upon their release from the facility.
Ms. Smith expressed her sincere appreciation for the support provided by Ms. King. "From a professional stand point, we [the Center] think Deborah King is the ideal person to speak to our graduates. This is recovery month and we want to do our part to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance abuse disorders and celebrate the people who recover.She has walked in their shoes and she knows what it's like to recover from addictions. What better person to come speak to our graduates."
During the ceremony, Deborah King will encourage graduates to think about their power of choice as it is "a powerful tool given to us by God," Ms. King said. "Life is all about choices. The choices we make today will affect our tomorrow and we are committed to helping others realize how positive choices impact the lives of individuals as well as the world around them."
The ceremony will conclude with a small celebratory reception presented to the graduates.
