TULSA, OK - Thursday was a graduation day of sorts for 100 ex-cons.  Tulsa's World Won Ministries hosted the ceremony, complete with caps and gowns.

The former offenders completed the Fitting Back In Program.  By combining community service with counseling, it's designed to help the former prisoners re-enter society after serving time behind bars.

"I've had the opportunity to attend those classes and gain those tools that are going to help me when I go out in the world to face the obstacles that lie in my way," said graduate Joy Stover.

The Fitting Back In Program boasts a 98% success rate in keeping ex-offenders from returning to prison.
