The Lincoln Hills Youth Prison has a new superintendent.
The Department of Corrections announced Thursday Jason Benzel will take over as the institution's head of education.
As we reported last week, Lincoln Hills will be closing as a juvenile facility and transitioning into an adult institution.
Benzel will serve as the superintendent for the remaining time Lincoln Hills serves as a youth prison.
He has been working with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections for 24 years.
