Polunsky Unit Success Story

Just wanted to say that I have been out now almost two years. I work for two transmission shops. Definitely couldn't have done it without Mr. Leblanc's help from the Polunsky Unit. He taught me things that even the guys rebuilding transmissions for many years didn't know. Just want to say thanks to him and also for Windham School District for making it all possible.
