Kevin Milyard, ’86, is Deputy Director of Prisons started his career with Colorado Department of Corrections (CDOC) in August 1987. Around that time, the CDOC was opening a new correctional facility and having an associate’s degree was a pre-requisite in getting hired. PCC had developed an accelerated program to assist the CDOC in meeting the need of hiring 300 employees. Kevin states, “The time I spent at PCC taught me more than just the required course curriculum. During our late night study groups, I learned that it took an entire team to succeed. Our instructors taught us to see things from different perspectives and how to find the strengths in others. We learned that some people may not produce great projects, but if they give 100% that meant more than those who put forth little effort to get just a passing grade. I have had a fulfilling and challenging career and everyone I have worked for has taught me something new. I thank PCC for the skill sets they taught me in and out of the classroom.”
