Johnson Job Corps CCC celebrated the accomplishments of 22 graduates with a commencement ceremony in which the recipients received diplomas, GEDs and certificates of completion from their vocational trades.

One of the graduates, Letman Williams had the privilege this past summer to serve an internship as a Forestry Technician at the Coweeta Research Station in Otto, in addition to serving another six weeks at the Marcell Experimental Station in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. Even though Letman completed Office Administration as a vocation, he has been willing to explore other avenues such as internships, work base learning opportunities, and researching labor market information so he can compete in an ever changing job market.

Letman described his job corps experience as life changing. “Not only did job corps change my life, it has also positively impacted how I have changed others’ lives as well”.

After completing job corps, Letman plans are to attend the Advanced Forestry Program at the Schenck Job Corps CCC in Brevard, N.C.

At Lyndon B. Johnson Job Corps CCC, we support the Job Corps program’s mission of teaching eligible young people the skills they need to become employable and independent and placing them in meaningful jobs or further education.
