Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – June 13, 2014
After months and months of worrying about making it into the horticulture class, I can finally set my mind at ease. I made it in! The teacher finally walked me down to his office to look me up on his computer. Only twenty inmates make the list each year, my number is 17 in the list. No matter how far down, I still made the cut and I couldn’t be more excited. This was my one and only chance to get an education in horticulture while in prison. The class is twelve months long, making this my final opportunity. I can’t wait to get started, learning all that I can to prepare myself for the big test at the end of the year. This test will allow me a chance for a master certification, one that can be utilized in the real world. There are four separate certifications and four separate tests for each one, all of which are a necessary key for professionals in these fields in society. Whether it is a landscape designer, agricultural farming, or spraying chemicals and pesticides on plants and grass, etc., etc. No matter the case, I know I will give this class 110% of my efforts in exceeding in every aspect.
