Pennington Gap Natives Win Corrections Week Bass Tournament
May 11th, 2017
The Fourth Annual Correctional Officers Week Bass Fishing Tournament was held Wednesday at Norris Lake. Pennington Gap natives Sam Stapleton and Jeff Green took home the grand prize of $700 as well as the $100 Big Bass trophy with a 5-fish limit of 12lb 56oz.
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed Proclamation 5187, creating “National Correctional Officers’ Week.” Each year, the first full week in May is recognized as National Correctional Officers and Employees Week, commemorating the contributions of correctional officers and personnel who work in jails, prisons, and community corrections across the country.
WSWV WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL WHO WORK IN CORRECTIONS.
