Past Prison Praises

The following 2008 letter, sent from from Roy Gilleo to WJEJ Radio in Hagerstown, Maryland for their "April Volunteer Recognition Month", was a wonderful compliment:

Mr. Scally,
On behalf of Mr. Larry D. Kump's close friends and co-workers, please accept my request to include him as an April Volunteer Recognition nominee.
Larry has been a long time proactive member and leader of the independent Maryland Classified Employees Association (MCEA), working many hours towards improving employee job justice and prison safety issues within the Maryland Division of Corrections.
MCEA is an independent employee association representing state employees, whose leaders are state employees who are elected and serve without compensation.
As a Maryland Correctional Case Management Specialist at the Roxbury Correctional Institution (RCI) located in Hagerstown, Maryland, Larry meets with nearly 200 inmates assigned to his case load to assess their individual programming needs while also volunteering to facilitate prison Cognitive Behavioral Restructuring Programs.
Larry previously organized and currently serves as the President of the MCEA Public Safety Non-Custody Employees Local Chapter without compensation. This tireless advocate of workplace justice and liberty also serves in the unpaid positions of MCEA Western Maryland Area Governor and member of the Statewide Board of Directors of MCEA.
The only true satisfaction that Larry will admit to is receiving "Thanks" for helping fellow state employees fight for fairness and equality. Along the way, Larry also was instrumental in getting meaningful salary increases and work week hours flexibility for his fellow prison case managers.
In closing, I'm certain that Larry would like everyone to know he is, and has always been by his own admission, the proud father of David and Sarah and a High Priest within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Larry's Friend and Co-Worker,
Roy Gilleo
RCI Case Manager

Addendum: Larry D. Kump worked as an RCI Prison Case Manager from 1991 through 2008.
