It is with great sadness that we inform our DYS community that Eliot Treatment Program Supervisor Terrance Talley passed away on January 1st, 2021 while working the 1st shift.
January 1st was the start of a new year and hopes for a new beginning. Staff at the Connelly Building were working with the youth in the programs when a co-worker, Terrance Talley, Program Supervisor, unexpectedly collapsed on the floor. Youth and staff instinctively jumped into action, including Ivair who applied CPR. Regrettably, Mr. Talley did not make it.
This loss is devastating for our DYS family. We encourage our staff and youth to keep Mr. Talley’s memory alive. And we want to thank the staff and youth for their heroic efforts in the face of this extremely traumatizing event.
