Dixon gets out in only over two months with a temporary position all set. “Yes, it’s happening very soon,” she said. “I’m going for it.”

Norris gets out in March and is prepared to begin coding.

“It’s an incredibly special day,” they said. “This is a step in a direction that I never knew I was going to be afforded the opportunity for, but I’m really happy that I did it.”

The Washington Department of Corrections and Tacoma Community College want to grow secure web training to all imprisoned understudies in the state.
