      CCA concept
      and company success earns business leadership award
      for Doctor Crants

      CCA Chairman, CEO and
      President Doc Crants was recently honored as Ernst &
      Young's 1998 Entrepreneur of the Year for the
      Southeastern U.S. region. Crants was selected from among
      several nationally recognized business leaders nominated
      for the award.

      The Entrepreneur of the Year
      award annually recognizes individuals who have
      demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in such
      areas as innovation, financial performance and personal
      commitment to their businesses and communities. Crants was
      chosen from 110 entries throughout the Southeast.
      Winners were announced at an awards banquet in Atlanta.
      Other industries represented at awards banquet included
      health care, technology, retail and manufacturing.

      "The thing that struck me in all of these cases were
      the personal sacrifices and the personal risk
      everyone takes," said Joseph Sansone, a contest judge and
      chairman of Georgia-based Pediatric Services of America, a
      national winner in last year's contest. "Anybody can run a
      business that's successful, but to take a new idea and
      sell it under some adverse conditions and a lot of
      skepticism and stick with it is a true measure of an
      individual's entrepreneurship."

      "The mission that CCA
      was founded upon was to provide quality corrections,
      at less cost, in partnership with government," said
      Crants. "It is gratifying to have the founding principles
      of the company recognized in this way. The credit
      for CCA's success goes to our employees, who carry
      out the vision and philosophy of our company's
      founders every day on the job."

      This year's
      contest is the 12th annual Entreprenuer of the Year
      awards competition. The Entrepreneur of the Year program
      is co-sponsored by USA Today, the NASDAQ stock
      market, the Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial
      Leadership and the Entrepreneur of the Year Institute.
      Regional award winners are eligible for national
      Entrepreneur of the Year honors.

      "Mr. Crants was
      chosen for Entrepreneur of the Year honors for the
      innovative spirit driving the CCA concept," said Darlene
      Lowe of Ernst & Young. "The type of business and the
      creativity behind it were impressive. CCA is a very unique
      idea. It's a perfect model for other businesses to

      Past award winners-a "Who's Who" of
      national business leaders-include Michael Dell of Dell
      Computer Corporation, Howard Schultz of Starbucks Coffee,
      Leon Gorman of L.L. Bean, and Steve Case of America
      Online. The Entrepreneur of the Year program was founded
      in 1986 by Ernst & Young, a national tax
      services/consulting firm, to honor outstanding owners of fast-growing
