The Saguaro is designed as a trophy for ASU Center for Correctional Solutions.
It is intended to be an award given by CCS to community members who affect prison reform. The award will be available to correctional employees, academics of criminal justice, incarcerated peer mentors and volunteers.
The design is intended to invoke pride and dedication to a vision of the future. It is intended to represent Arizona's iconic phoenix and majestic Saguaro cactus. The design pays homage to CCS and the incremental development they facilitate.
