Correctional Facility Inmates and Staff Working For the Community

The Winston Choctaw Regional Correction Facility (WCCRCF) is doing its part to help our community during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Warden Neal Higgason has established an inmate project to produce masks for local needs to address the shortage.

 Enough masks have been produced to issue to staff and inmates at the correctional facility. Masks will be made available to law enforcement and first responders as well as employees of Winston County, the City of Louisville and any medical provider that has a need. 

Higgason said, "GED instructor Peggy Wallace is the team leader for the program. These inmates have volunteered to work on the project having recognized the need for the masks. These inmates are working several hours a day with no expectation of reward or pay. They are doing this because they want to serve their community in this difficult time. I would like to thank Sheriff Jason Pugh and the Winston County Board of Supervisors for supporting this project."
