The first and only Chippewa Valley graduation ceremony for the Corrections Officer Academy was held yesterday in Chippewa Falls.

61 students completed a seven-week course in order to beome corrections officers in the Stanley Prison and the Highview Correctional Institution, which will open in April.

Officials say the program will give a boost to the Chippewa Valley economy, since all the graduates were area hires.

The graduating class had one of the lowest drop-out rates of any other correctional training class in Wisconsin.
