A former mayor and police commissioner, Scientology representatives, and former inmates will be participating in a special awards event at the Arizona State Prison on May 22. The event is sponsored by NARCONON, Scientology-based rehabilitation program, which is also active in California and Illinois.

The awards will be presented to prison officials by NARCONON's nationwide supervisor, Arthur J.Maren. Recipients of the awards will be the Assistant Superintendent of Custody, Dale F. Brandfas, and John Russell, Construction Foreman, NARCONON's first sponsor.

"The awards are being given to these prison officials because of their contributions of support, time and effort to the NARCONON program," said Danny Dorosky, senior chairman. A former addict, Dorosky leaves the prison May 23.

Russell was NARCONON's sponsor from February, 1966, to February 1969, and devoted fifty hours a month to NARCONON and other rehabilitation programs.

In addition to the presentation of awards at the event will be the installation of the new senior chairman, Don Mesaros, a member of NARCONON for two years, serving sentences of 25 years to life and eight years to 10 years.
