June 2, Stephen Claytor, Associate Warden at Perry Correctional Institute, to speak to the Upstate SC SinC

Stephen Claytor is the Associate Warden for Programs and Services at Perry Correctional Institute. He started his career in 1981 as a social worker at Perry, was promoted to Social Work Director, and in 1994 was promoted to Associate Warden for Programs and Services. He has a Master of Social Work, Master of Criminal Justice, and B.A. in Sociology and Psychology. When I talked to Steve, I explained that all we know about prisons we learned in Orange is the New Black. He snickered and said that some things weren’t nearly as bad as we think, and some things are worse. This should be an interesting meeting.

The monthly Sisters in Crime meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 2, at The Runway Café, 21 Airport Rd, Greenville, S.C. Be there at 6:15 p.m. to meet Steve and enjoy the chapter fellowship. Supper should be served at 6:30. Associate Warden Claytor’s presentation will begin at 7 p.m. Both the dinner and the meeting are open to the public.
