BERLIN, N.H. — A warden has been named for the federal prison under construction in the New Hampshire North Country.
Deborah Schult, a former associate warden at the Federal Medical Center at Fort Devens in Massachusetts, will report to the prison in February.
Schult joined the Federal Bureau of Prisons in 1995 as a psychologist at the correctional institution in Fort Dix, N.J.
Schult, who also has served as a residential drug abuse coordinator, was named warden at the medium-security prison in Ray Brook, N.Y., in 2007.
The prison in Berlin is expected to be finished this summer. It will house about 1,152 medium-security and 128 minimum-security inmates.
