Gerald R. Ford Job Corps Student Selected for Advanced Training Program

January 31st, 2012

Gerald R. Ford Job Corps student, Kelvin Pierson has been accepted to TCU Advanced Training in Minnesota. He will be training for a career in the transportation industry. 

Kelvin struggled with traditional high school options before coming to Job Corps. His uncle, cousin and step-father all attended Job Corps and were successful in life as a result. Kelvin’s family members urged him to follow the same path. 

Kelvin shared that he struggled in academics and his first trade but when he found his niche he decided not to give up and go home. It was a challenge for Kelvin at first but he was able to overcome these obstacles and as a result of his dedication and hard work he is now going on to advanced training at TCU Minnesota.
