As part of her tour through the heart of Iowa before the Independence Day holiday, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds made a quick stop at the North Central Correctional Facility on July 1, located on the eastern outskirts of Rockwell City.
Reynolds, along with Lt. Gov. Adam Gregg, met with Warden Robert Johnson and Beth Skinner, the Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections, along with officials from the minimum-security facility and Iowa Central Community College.
Along with touring the North Central Correctional Facility, Gov. Reynolds and Lt. Gov. Gregg visited Manning, Audubon, Greenfield and Creston. The visit to Rockwell City was the Governor’s second visit on a three-day tour de force that included eight different locations throughout the state.
Following the tour that was highlighted by Reynolds and Gregg meeting with inmates who are rehabilitating through online college courses, officials from Iowa Central Community College – which included ICCC President Dan Kinney – outlined how the programs offered by the two-year institution will help the inmates transition back into society.
