OSSINING - Dozens of Sing Sing Correctional Facility inmates graduated from college Wednesday.

Thanks to a program called Hudson Link, a program that provides education to hardened criminals, the Sing Sing inmates were able to graduate from Mercy College.

"Oh, it broadened my horizons," says Herbert Morales, 50. "Before I was in this program, I thought the border stopped at Brooklyn."

This program gives the graduating inmates at Sing Sing and their families hopes and dreams beyond the bars of their cells.
