The featured speaker during CRESC’s July 2017 meeting was Douglas Hollis. Hollis was 16 years old when he arrived at the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill to begin serving a life sentence. On March 3, 2017, Hollis walked out of SCI Mahanoy, a free man for the first time in 42 years. Hollis spoke about taking advantage of every opportunity offered to him while he was incarcerated in order to better himself and give back to others while incarcerated. Hollis stressed that an important part of his journey included doing what's right and being rewarded for your efforts. The promise of Hollis' appearance at the July 2017 CRESC meeting drew a whopping 43 attendants! CRESC would like to thank Mr. Hollis for sharing his inspiring story with us!
