Congratulations are due to former Brother in Pen Troy Williams who was released from prison last month after 18 years. Troy was a member of the class for several years and wrote many moving stories. He participated in countless programs, events, classes and workshops and was very involved with San Quentin Media, creating documentaries and newscasts. In fact, just today on KALW’s CrossCurrents radio, there is a story about Troy receiving an “Excellence in Journalism” award, on behalf of San Quentin Prison Report, from the Society of Professional Journalists of Northern California. The SQPR was given the award for Community Journalism (Radio/Audio). You can hear the story here: http://kalw.org/post/troy-williams-speech-spj-northern-california-2014-awards-ceremony

I know good things are in store for Troy in his new life. We’ve missed him in class but it’s exciting to imagine the world opening up for him now. Peace and blessings–
