    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
