Carl D. Perkins Job Corps student finds career of his dreams

November 21st, 2017

Congratulations to Carl D. Perkins Security and Protective Services student Jabori Lattimore, who through perseverance and hard work, has achieved his goal of enlisting in the military. Lattiimore is heading to Fort Jackson, SC, for basic training in the U.S. Army, and will work as a unit supply specialist in the Army with the realization of that goal was possible, in large part, because of the discipline and structure Lattimore received in the Job Corps program.


Lattimore, 22, from Louisville, KY enrolled in the Job Corps after he realized that “working at a dead end job was not going to cut it.” He enrolled at Perkins Job Corps in September 2016, with the goals to better himself and enlist in the military. He completed both the Culinary Arts and Security and Protective Services program at Perkins. Additional, he worked hard in the Perkins class for the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery , a timed multi-aptitude test, to raise his test scores, including taking ASVAB material to his room each night to study on. On his second attend at the test, he learned the test score he needed to enlist.
Lattimore held several leadership positions while at Perkins Job Corps. He served on the Student Government Association, and as a Youth2Youth Student Ambassador, peer counselor, dorm leader and class leader. He worked many events off center that provided on-the-job experience, including the Kentucky State Fair, Kentucky Derby, U@ Concert, Bengals football games and Cincinnati Reds baseball games. Carl D. Perkins Job Corps congratulates Jabori Lattimore on all of his achievements, and is happy that he was able to the career of his dreams with the help of the Perkins Job Corps Program.
