Read the full story here.


Synopsis: Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Drafting Technology program student William Rutledge (left), stands with Jane Hansen, the conference of court public information officer for the Supreme Court of Georgia, during the installation of a conference table designed by Rutledge while he was in prison. Rutledge, who is also an employee of Georgia Correctional Industries (GCI), has been working on the desk since December. It was at GCI’s Metal Plant where Rutledge felt like he was regaining his identity. “They gave me purpose and structure when I was in prison. Not many people have this opportunity,” Rutledge said. “I have gone from having a state prison ID number to a state employee ID.”
