FORSYTH, Ga. – On July 21, Johnson State Prison (SP) hosted a graduation ceremony and Family Day for the Faith and Character Based (F&CB) Dorm. There were 15 graduates and over 100 family members who participated.

“We are proud of the men who completed this 12-month long Faith and Character Based Program,” said Commissioner Gregory C. Dozier. “This is joyous occasion that strengthens family bonds and keeps offenders motivated for change.”
