December 30th, 2010
The Fred G. Acosta Job Corps Center hosted a very productive Center Industry Council (CIC) Luncheon on October 26, 2010. The Center asked Mr. John Wesley Miller to be our CIC Honorary Chairman for the next year. Once we received his approval the excitement caught on and grew from there. We had some very special guests in attendance for our luncheon; Shawna Adams General Manager of the Tucson Jobing.com gave our employers some encouraging words about employment trends in Tucson. Shawna was followed by Acosta Graduate, Ruben Hernandez, Manager of Naughton’s Plumbing Supply Store located on Prince, who gave his success story. We were also honored to have John Wesley Miller on hand to introduce a great supporter of the Job Corps program, Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who surprised us all with a very special guest, US Senator Mark Udall from Colorado.
Following the Luncheon; where many new employers pledged their support for the Fred G. Acosta Job Corps program. Congresswoman Giffords and Senator Udall made their way to the gymnasium to speak to the student body.
