Dear Representative Lifferth, This is Kent Larsen, Superintendent of the South Sanpete School District. Good luck in this year's legislative session. I would be happy to assist you if I can. I was informed today that there could be a suggested request for a $480,000 budget cut to the Adult Prison Education fund. The Education school at the prison is under our direction. It is a very successful program with great results from graduating inmates. They are working on a bare-bone budget. None the less, they are growing with both inmates and inmate success. I would be happy to share the data with you. Please support us in keeping the present funding in place. Thanks, Kent
