    I had the pleasure of working with Lt. Madden at Calipatria state Prison on B yard. He was an exemplary officer who taught we teachers a lot about write ups and other paperwork. He would go out of his way to make sure things were done right and help others as much as possible. I would say this is an honor that is well deserved. Congratulations!
