Inmates Graduation
In this Dec. 13, 2013 photo, Tennessee Prison for Women inmates Erika East, of Ocala, Fla., center, and Michelle Lockwood, of Knoxville, right, put on their gowns before their graduation ceremony in Nashville, Tenn. A group of inmates earned an associates degree through Lipscomb University in a program created just for them. East says the classes have given her renewed hope, a change of attitude and the ability to look beyond herself. (AP Photo/Mark Zaleski)
