Dan Dilly has been named superintendent of the Kenneth “Honey” Rubenstein Juvenile Center in Tucker County, West Virginia, effective Aug. 1.

Division of Juvenile Services Director Stephanie Bond said Dilly, a longtime juvenile justice official, had been acting superintendent of the 84-bed complex since she left the position in February 2013.

Rubenstein Center embraces a research-driven approach to juvenile justice and hosts the Governor’s Adolescent Leadership Academy, which provides cognitive therapy and educational and vocational-technical programs within a structured setting.

Dilly began his decades-long career as a corrections counselor at the Huttonsville Correctional Center in 1983, then moved to the Rubenstein Center’s predecessor facility in Davis the following year, advancing from staff to supervisory posts. He was program director at Rubenstein Center when it opened in 2009.

“Having worked there for 30 years, (he) understands the philosophy of the Rubenstein Center,” Bond said. “During his past year as acting superintendent, he has worked through the transition that the Division of Juvenile Services has gone through and proven his ability to lead his facility on its path forward.”

Bond said Dilly and the other staff members “work very hard to help the young men entrusted in their care learn to lead productive lives upon release."

A Tucker County native, Dilly earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice with a minor in sociology from Fairmont State University in 1982. His previous achievements in his field include his election as president of the Southern States Correctional Association in 2005, and as president of its West Virginia chapter in 1994.

Dilly said his appointment is an honor, and pledge to work with the center’s staff to continue to provide programming that meets or exceeds national standards.

“It is my goal for the Rubenstein Center to continue providing quality programs for the young men in our custody as we continue offering rewarding employment for the citizens of Tucker and surrounding counties,” he said.

The Division of Juvenile Services is part of the West Virginia Department of Military Affairs and Public Safety. Bond took over as DJS superintendent July 1 after more than a year as acting superintendent.
