"Job Corps is a good opportunity and anybody who really applies themselves can make it at anything in life."

I attended the Clearfield Job Corps program from April 18, 1995, to December 14, 1996.

I graduated as a completer of the Printing/Graphic Arts Program. I also completed 3 quarters at Salt Lake Community College. After leaving the program, I went back home to San Diego for a little while. I returned to Utah and entered Weber State University. I graduated from Weber State with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and communication in 2004. I then graduated from Salt Lake Community College in 2008 with an A.A.S. in the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. I will begin working at Dixie Medical Center at the end of the month. I am very grateful for the opportunity Clearfield Job Corps provided me. It definitely was a springboard in life – just out of high school and getting my feet wet and learning life experiences.

My brother attended Job Corps in Montana. He was in the heavy equipment program. He loved it a lot and gained a lot of good experience.

Job Corps is a good opportunity and anybody who really applies themselves can make it at anything in life. I am grateful for the experiences I gained at Clearfield.
