THREE-TIME PRO BOWL QB DREW BLEDSOE INTERACTS WITH INMATES

OROFINO, Idaho -- Drew Bledsoe, a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback with the New England Patriots, will visit the Idaho State Maximum Security Prison in Orofino, Idaho on Tuesday, July 11 to speak to the graduates from the “Parenting with Dignity” course created through the Drew Bledsoe Foundation. The Idaho State prison system has been using the “Parenting with Dignity” course for over a year and a half with great success. It is used as a part of their high school equivalency and G.E.D. programs, their drug treatment program and as a part of the parole out-processing. Drew will interact with the inmates and field questions about the program.

His father, Mac, the co-founder of the “Parenting with Dignity Program” and the President of the Drew Bledsoe Foundation, will accompany Drew on the visit. Mac has visited the prison in the past and is currently working on building a special version of the Parenting course for incarcerated parents. Jim Rehder, the Director of Education for the Idaho Prison System, has set up many opportunities during the day for both of the Bledsoes to interact with the inmates and gather information for the creation of this new version of the course.
