GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) — Hannah Morrison feels a confidence in herself and her actions that she hasn't felt in a long time.

The 23-year-old Morrison is one of the eight graduates from the first-ever Barren County Detention Center Moral Reconation Therapy program. The graduates had their ceremony recently at the center. Family members were invited and they had pizza to celebrate.

Barren County Jailer Matt Mutter said MRT is a program that helps rehabilitate inmates by teaching them to be more responsible citizens when they are released from jail.

The program, which is almost like a therapy session, taught Morrison how to take a different and better look at her own life.
