THEI Hosts Community Open House

Graduations are special occasions for THEI. In addition to an opportunity to celebrate our graduates, they offer an opportunity to share about the transformative work we do with currently and formerly incarcerated students. THEI staff, board members, other non-profit leaders, community members and representatives from the Tennessee Department of Correction attended for great food, fellowship and to learn more about how we live out our mission of bringing hope, dignity, and college degrees for incarcerated individuals across Tennessee.
