CCNO Recognizes Volunteers

Vol­un­teers at the Cor­rec­tions Cen­ter of North­west Ohio received spe­cial recog­ni­tion, includ­ing hon­or­ing the Vol­un­teer of the Year, dur­ing the 24th annual Vol­un­teer Recog­ni­tion Ban­quet held Tues­day. Vol­un­teer Jim Scruta of Napoleon, who has been a vol­un­teer there since 2001, was named the CCNO Vol­un­teer of the Year for 2014.

In 2014, he donated 241.5 hours of ser­vice, the sec­ond high­est num­ber of hours to be donated dur­ing the year. Jim serves as a reli­gious vol­un­teer, assist­ing with ser­vices for the Mon­day night men’s Bible study groups as well as the Thurs­day night Catholic ser­vices. He has also helped out with spe­cial ser­vices and events sched­uled through­out the year. In addi­tion to com­plet­ing the four-hour of basis train­ing as a vol­un­teer, Mr. Scruta com­pleted 40 hours of non-security spe­cial­ized train­ing at CCNO which allows him to trans­port offend­ers to and from var­i­ous ser­vices. CCNO is cur­rently in need of AA vol­un­teers, espe­cially female AA Vol­un­teers. Vol­un­teer appli­ca­tions can be found at For fur­ther infor­ma­tion, call 419–428-3800, ext. 406.
