Inmate choir sings outside facility
By LEEANN COCHEMS, SBWCC case manager

South Boise Women’s Correctional Center is lighting up the prisons in Kuna. 

The lighting ceremony was a success with Santa, treats, hot chocolate and the SBWCC Women’s Choir leading the lighting ceremony.  

This was open to our IDOC family and SBWCC was excited to share it with Chief Ashley Dowell, Deputy Chief Ross Castleton, and Board of Correction Cindy Wilson, Religious Volunteers, and IDOC family members who came to support the women at our facility.

It was a good time had by all. 

Program staff members provided elfish support with Santa Scott Spackman.

South Boise Women’s Correctional Center’s Choir has been a joyous experience for the women at our facility.  

Their debut at the facility lighting ceremony, but practice makes perfect and they have honed their skills for Christmas Day. They are singing for all the women at SBWCC in two performances on Christmas Day and during visiting. 

This has been a positive experience for the women and some plan to continue when they return to the community. 

The women are all coming from a place of happy and joyous hearts and it has helped them to get through the holiday season being incarcerated.  

SBWCC would thank all that helped and participated in bringing holiday cheer to our facility.
