Scott Stump, assistant secretary for career, technical, and adult education at the U.S. Department of Education, visited Lookout Mountain Youth Services Center Jan. 17 to see the vocational and technical opportunities available to the center's youth. Stump, CDHS Executive Director Michelle Barnes, Director of the Division of Youth Services Anders Jacobson, and Director of the Office of Children, Youth and Families Minna Castillo Cohen visited the center’s screen printing shop, and barbering, culinary arts and construction trades programs. “The visit inspired conversation, vision, and direction to further support youth vocational programming in DYS,” Jacobson said. "I saw students preparing to be career ready upon reentry," Stump said. "It’s more important than ever to provide multiple educational pathways to incarcerated individuals at facilities such as Lookout Mountain."
