To future students, if you go out and work for it, success will come to you.

Jonathan Poole, from Munford, Tennessee, enrolled into the Muhlenberg Job Corps Center in January of 2014. Before graduating in October of the same year, he successfully completed the Heavy Equipment Operator and Class B CDL Truck Driving courses. Jonathan now lives in Millington, Tennessee where he landed a wonderful CDL job with great benefits working as a jet-vacuum truck driver for Compliance Enviro Systems, LLC (CES). CES provides all services required for comprehensive storm drain and sanitary sewer system evaluations and works for many municipalities following natural disasters.

Poole is 20 years of age and his hiring is unique because companies do not usually take on someone so young. He aced his interview and his supervisors’ state he is doing very well for the company. While speaking with Jonathan, he shared “I would like to thank everyone who encouraged me to enroll into Job Corps, it was the best decision I ever made. I also want to thank my trade instructors for believing in me every step of the way. To future students, if you go out and work for it, success will come to you.” The Job Corps Heavy Truck Driving Instructor, Scottie Brooks stated: “I knew Jonathan would do well after he left the program, he was a great student, I wish him all the best.”
