Program in Place to Help Catawba County Inmates Earn G.E.D.

The Catawba County Detention Facility has started a High School Equivalency Program intended to assist inmates wishing to obtain General Education Diplomas. The program is collaboration between the Catawba County Sheriff’s Office, Catawba Valley Community College, and Dr. Donald Gray, who is the pastor at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church in Catawba.

The program is available to all Catawba County Detention Facility inmates and can be continued post-release through C.V.C.C. The program is administered online and accessed through tablets provided to inmates. Instructors also offer in-person instruction weekly. The program was started on July 1 of this year and presently has six inmates enrolled.
