A Message from MASCA President

Paul Lagana:

"On behalf  of The Middle Atlantic States Correctional Association, I would like to congratulate MASCA’s Operations Director Michael Carrington on his appointment as Pennsylvania Department of Corrections’ Statewide Veterans Coordinator. Honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps in 2006, Mike is the ideal selection for this position where his experience, knowledge and passion position him for continued success. The responsibilities of Mike’s new role are significant, but there is little doubt that he will continue to positively impact our veterans and Pennsylvania’s DOC while also distinguishing himself as an exemplary leader. Congratulations, Mike!"
