Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP) has been selected as the Business of the Year by the City of Delano Chamber of Commerce. This award is being given to KVSP because of their outstanding community support displayed throughout the year.
“Kern Valley is committed to the City of Delano, and we strive to be the best neighbor we can be,” said Warden Kelly Harrington. “Receiving this award is a testament to our commitment and it is truly an honor to be recognized by the City in this way.”
KVSP has participated in local community events such as the annual Thanksgiving Dinner Program, Toys for Tots, Christmas Adopt-a-School Program and the Relay for Life-Fight Against Cancer. Many staff and their families from the institution participate in these community events, donating several hundred hours and several thousands of dollars in good and in-kind contributions.
Warden Harrington will be accepting the award on behalf of KVSP staff at an awards dinner on June 17 in Delano.
