David Higgs Promoted to Deputy Warden at Green River Correctional Complex

David-HiggsDavid HiggsFRANKFORT, Ky. (7/15/14) – Longtime Green River Correctional Complex employee David Higgs has been promoted to deputy warden of the prison.

His promotion is effective July 16.

Higgs was the fifth employee hired during construction of GRCC and his entire corrections career has been dedicated to the institution. He was hired in 1994 as the prison’s first fiscal manager and has served in this capacity until his promotion to deputy warden.

“David Higgs is the consummate dedicated corrections professional,” said Corrections Commissioner LaDonna H. Thompson. “He has devoted the past 20 years to the department and to Green River Correctional Complex specifically. He has always been someone we could depend on and I am pleased to see him achieve this goal. I believe he will be a tremendous asset to the executive management of the prison.”

Higgs was instrumental in opening GRCC and his expertise was called upon in 2005 for the opening of Little Sandy Correctional Complex. His knowledge of institutional budgets and ability to forecast necessary purchasing to ensure budget restraints are met is a great benefit to the department.

He is an inaugural member of the GRCC Hostage Negotiation Team and in 2010 accepted the responsibility of becoming the team’s leader. Later that year he was selected as the Western Region HNT Coordinator. He has also served as GRCC’s Public Information Officer for 18 years.

Higgs has been recognized with numerous awards during his career, including the agency’s top award, a Commissioner’s Award, in 2013.

He is a graduate of Murray State University with a bachelor’s degree in communications.
