Had to share some good news! Billy just called and he has made Peer Leader in the program he is in. There is only 1 peer leader per section and there are 4 sections somewhere around 150 inmates in the program total. Anyway, it's a coveted position, and it actually pays money! He has also been trying to enroll to get his high school dipoloma (he has his GED) but they are on a "break" right now. Then when he finishes the program in October he can request a special attention hearing for the parole board to review his sentence. Most people have been getting 3-6 months knocked off. With everything that Billy has done. Life Skills, Finance, Facilities Leader, Peer Leader, and eventually High School Diploma we can only hope that the board will knock off 6 months. That would mean he would be home right before Christmas next year! He has missed the last 4 or 5 Christmas'. I can only hope and pray that things go OUR way for once :) I'm so damn proud of him right now. YAY!
