MOUNT PLEASANT – The Iowa Board of Corrections voted today in support of the appointment of Stephen Weis as the next warden of the Clarinda Correctional Facility (CCF) in Clarinda, Iowa. This appointment was recommended to the board by an internal department hiring committee. Weis will replace former warden Randy Gibbs, who was selected as the warden for the Iowa State Penitentiary in April.

Weis has served as the deputy warden of the CCF since December of 2015. He started his more-than-31-year career in corrections with the Nebraska Department of Corrections in 1987. Throughout his career in corrections with both Nebraska and Iowa, he has held such positions as: correctional officer, parole officer, parole supervisor, community treatment coordinator, and associate warden.

Commenting on the approval by the board, Iowa Corrections Director Beth Skinner said, “I couldn’t imagine a better person for this position than Warden Weis. He has a wealth of experience in both community-based and institutional environments, and has shown an unyielding commitment to both the staff and incarcerated men at the Clarinda Correctional Facility. I’m confident that CCF is in good hands with Warden Weis.”
