Young Commissioner Receives Award

March 28th, 2008 by flanews

A member of a group charged with coming up with ideas to revamp the states juvenile justice system was awarded for his work. 26 year old Alexander Arnold served on the Blue Print Commission, with some members twice his age. Earlier this year the commission offered recommendations to improve the states juvenile justice system. Arnold heard about the commission and though he could help, because less than a decade ago he was serving time in a juvenile detention center.

“I did have a past. I once was in the system, said Arnold. I felt it could be beneficial for other youths to hear from someone who had been in the system, to actually know and relate to what was going on. I felt that my views and my points were very, very, very important.”

Arnold works for DHL. The delivery company gave Arnold the award and made sure he had time to attend the Blueprint commission meetings.
