I read an article in APPLE  News, on January 1st, about Sy Newson Green who attended a book club meeting,  at California’s Soledad State Prison while he was a student at nearby Palma High School.

Shortly thereafter a family health crisis ate up the money that was being saved for his college.  His father needed a heart transplant, his mother lost vision when a softball hit her eye  and both parents lost their jobs. That’s when an unlikely group of people stepped up with Sy’s  tuition: inmates at the nearby Correctional Training Facility, also known as Soledad State Prison.
