Anvil Mountain Inmate Volunteers Clean Section of Nome-Teller Highway

On the 4th of July holiday weekend, Correctional Officers Robert Grubb and Sherry Gilbert escorted minimum custody inmates on a road clean up. Anvil Mountain Correctional Center adopted four miles of the Nome-Teller Highway. Each year, an community work service inmate crew clear debris and trash from the roadside. The inmates enjoy being outside of the facility, and local motorists appreciate the effort and honk, offer a thumbs up or sometimes stop to thank staff and the inmates for their community service.
