MAURY -- The state Department of Correction has named Travis Outlaw the new superintendent at Eastern Correctional Institution. He succeeds Carla O'Konek Smith, who has retired.

Formerly the superintendent at Duplin Correctional Center, Outlaw began his corrections career in 1975 as a correctional officer at Pender Correctional Center.

A Duplin native, he is a graduate of St. Augustine College. He and his wife, Erma, have four children and live in Goldsboro.
