Last Friday’s Community Leader’s Meeting, hosted by the Cuero Development Corporation, had a change of scenery; the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum’s Proctor-Green House served as the historic meeting place, where Warden Corey Furr, Senior Warden for the Clarence N. Stevenson Unit in Cuero, was the morning’s guest speaker.

Following the speech, Community Leader’s Meeting attendees were able to visit the CTHM for the “Cuero Celebrates Warhol” art exhibit. With about 30 years of experience in the Texas Department of Corrections, Warden Furr spoke about his extended background within the agency, and how his experience has transfered over to the Stevenson Unit.

“Every thing’s changing in the agency since I started,” stated Warden Furr, “and it’s changing for the better.” The Warden was referring to downsizing the amount of offenders in the buildings, and following different litigations in regards to heat.

“Our main mission is, as you know, public safety,” Warden Furr said to the crowd. He continued: “The key things that we are focusing on now is rehabilitation of the offender population.”
