Don Bottom, who has been the warden at the state’s largest minimum-security prison for the past three years, has been named warden at Northpoint Training Center near Burgin.
Bottom was deputy warden of security at Northpoint for three years before he was promoted to warden at Blackburn Correctional Complex in Fayette County.
Steve Haney, who has been Northpoint’s warden for more than six years, will return to Blackburn. He was warden at Blackburn from 2000 to 2006.
Both moves are effective Oct. 16.
The warden changes are part of a departmental plan designed to provide leadership diversity throughout the prison system. The state Department of Corrections has recently transferred or promoted new wardens at six of the other state prisons.
