While serving time in the Cass County Jail, two inmates have earned high school diplomas. In coordination with Cassopolis Schools, the sheriff's office offers a diploma program for inmates currently housed in the facility. Inmates provide their records from their last known school and the school district provides a curriculum for them to complete during their incarceration. 34-year old Elvin Pasley of Dowagiac and 18-year old Nathaniel Hancock of Elkhart, Indiana earned their diplomas Thursday. The two men say the program is a way to turn a bad situation good - as best they can. The Cass County Sheriff's Office has offered the diploma program for over 20-years.
