University students jump in to help inmates turn jeans to quilts
Thursday, December 30, 2010
When Cory Harlan toured the Jefferson City Correctional Center with his Intro to Criminal Justice class, what he saw sparked an idea.
He wanted to be involved somehow in the Restorative Justice Program where he witnessed prisoners creating quilts from donated jeans and fabric. Thus, the Jeans for Justice project was born.
Harlan, with the help of advisors and fellow students at William Woods University, founded Lambda Alpha Epsilon, a criminal justice fraternity in the spring of 2010.
