It is with great sadness that we have learned that one of our favorite students, Damon Thibodeaux has passed away from complications of COVID 19 on August 31st.
Damon was a student with us back in 2014. He was an amazing person and a kind and accepting attitude despite being wrongly convicted of murder back in 1997. The Minneosta Innocence Project helped exonerate him in 2012 after he had served 12 years on death row in Lousisana. After he graduated from Interstate he went on to a continuous career as a truck driver.
If you get a chance, Google Damon and learn about his amazing journey.
Rest in Peace my friend!
