A little while ago, one of my part-time jobs was at a call center,
talking to people on the telephone and inviting them to subscribe to
the newspaper. One day I was assigned a desk next to a person who,
between the automatically dialed calls, was studying an education text.

When we had a chance to converse, I discovered this person was about
to attend graduation ceremonies, as a graduate of Judge W. Jackson
Willoughby's drug rehabilitation program.

I heard her enthusiastic praise for Judge Willoughby's program, and
heard her tell me how through his program she had found the strength
and courage to turn her life around, to look to her future, and to
begin studies to enter the teaching profession.

This beautiful young life was one among many saved by the drug
rehabilitation program instituted by Judge Willoughby.
