10 Carl D. Perkins graduates begin Correctional Officer careers

January 6th, 2021

Ten recent graduates of the Advanced Security Training Program at the Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Center have started new jobs at the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex.
All 10 students completed advanced security training and three graduates — Jenna Reyes, April Mangelwol, and Robertine Maccius — also participated in the criminal justice program offered through Big Sandy Community and Technical College.

Though Perkins Job Corps and Luther Luckett have been in partnership, employing close to 30 graduates within the past year, 10 students completing correctional officer training and obtaining employment all at once, is a first. The advanced security training at Perkins Job Corps program meets the state of KY’s need for correctional officers, while at the same time giving students an immediate career leg up.
The 10 new graduates are Kathy Daidad, Reginald Allen, Elsa DeNova, Shi’ De Basford, Keefona Clark, David Johnson, Christian Ortega, Justin Reyes, April Mangelwol, and Robertine Maccius. Carl D. Perkins Job Corps Center, Begin your career here!
