In 2015, Michael Tausek left me a message. He served as a deputy warden in Maine’s high-security prison. He told me that he wanted to create programs to help people adjust in ways that would prepare them for success. Michael had heard about the Straight-A Guide program that I designed. I based the program on lessons I learned while climbing through 26 years in federal prison.
I felt grateful to receive a purchase order. Providing resources to help people in the Maine State Prison brought meaning to my life. I’m grateful.
