Hoiland honored with Silver Cross

The Board of Correction awarded Senior Probation and Parole Officer Clint Hoiland the Silver Cross for saving the life of a young man.

Hoiland was driving home from work on February 15 when he saw a young man standing on a high railing on the Southway Bridge that spans the river between Lewiston, Idaho and Clarkston, Washington. Hoiland parked his car and rushed over to help. He heard the man crying, and it appeared he was getting ready to jump

The award nomination describes what happened next; "Clint grabbed the young man and pulled him off the railing...He then told two bystanders to call 911. The 18-year-old man said he had been bullied in school, and wanted to kill himself."
