Governor honors OCC chief

John Aldana, Superintendent of Olympic Corrections Center, was among 20 state employees who were honored with the Governor’s Award for Leadership in Management at the governor’s mansion on July 9.
The award is defined to “recognize managers in state government who exemplify performance in what they accomplish, as well as how they have done it.” Aldana’s work with staff, community partners and the state Department of Natural Resources was praised for “turning the Olympic Corrections Center into a high-performing re-entry center for offenders returning to the community.”
