HAGERSTOWN -- Wardens at two state prisons south of Hagerstown swapped positions Monday at the order of state officials, a Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services spokesman said Tuesday.
The wardens' new assignments, and several other personnel moves at prisons throughout the state, were announced to Division of Correction personnel March 3, Mark Vernarelli said.
Warden Roderick Sowers, formerly assigned to Roxbury Correctional Institution, is now at neighboring Maryland Correctional Institution.
Warden Nancy Rouse moved from MCI to RCI.
MCI is the older, slightly larger prison, with about 2,100 inmates. RCI's population is about 1,750. RCI has a slightly higher security rating, although both institutions are considered medium security facilities.
Two assistant wardens will be moved, effective April 28.
Gregg Hershberger, assistant warden at Maryland Correctional Training Center will move to MCI and Phil Morgan, assistant warden at MCI, will move to MCTC.
