REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, former convict Daniel Geiter launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to create Ward College, a new non-profit community college geared toward helping currently or formerly incarcerated men and women in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Geiter, who now has a doctorate, wants help others break free from a cycle of imprisonment.
"The vision of Ward College emerged from my deep desire to extend to others the life-changing care, investment and mentorship that has been given to me over the past several years in my educational journey," said Daniel Geiter. "Our goal is to change the understanding of life after incarceration, because it should be life after incarceration. It shouldn't be a lifetime of incarceration."
