After a long and successful career as a high school coach and administrator, Mark was "sentenced" to prison by his local school board. He became the academy principal with the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison, Utah.

Arriving at the "Island of Misfit Toys", he quickly realized a massive opportunity to truly help and correct inmates. He saw prison through the eyes of the inmates who are not the monsters we often think they are. They're more often than not, decent men. Your brothers, fathers, uncles and friends.

During his eight-years inside he saw enrollment in the prison academy jump from 200 to nearly 1200 students and enacted, first hand, a mode of change that is more than possible in a severely broken system...if only someone at the top would listen. That someone may have just arrived.
