He will report to Chief Executive Officer Morag Lucey.

“This is a truly exciting time for Televerde.

Televerde recently issued the findings of a study conducted by Arizona State University’s Seidman Research Institute that review the economic, social and fiscal impact of Televerde and the Arouet Foundation’s prison workforce development program on individuals, families, and the state of Arizona. The results reveal that participants of Televerde’s prison workforce development program go on to attain employment, earnings, and education at higher rates and reoffend at significantly lower rates than other formerly incarcerated females in the United States.
