Former prison inmates have teamed up to get a fresh start in life by starting a forestry company in Los Lunas, New Mexico.
Following their release from Los Lunas prison in 2018, low-level offenders Lawrence Jaramillo and Joshua Melendrez decided to apply the skills they learned at the Inmate Work Camp (IWC) to the outside world, according to Fox 6.
“The training there is immaculate,” Jaramillo stated, adding, “I couldn’t have asked for any better training.
“I was able to see more of New Mexico in prison than I have my whole life living here,” he commented.
Two years with IWC,” Melendrez explained, adding, “We take pride in what we do.”
