Muhlenberg JCC receives Congressional Record

April 29th, 2015

The week of April 20th for the Job Corps nation consisted of celebratory events for Job Corps 50th Anniversary. During the evening on April 21st, a celebratory dinner honored graduates who have completed the program over its five decades, employer and corporate partners, congressional champions and hundreds of local supporters from across the country. All gathered to celebrate Job Corps 50 years of transforming lives and building lifetime employment and careers.

On April 22, 2015, officials of the Muhlenberg Job Corps Center and Horizons Youth Services had the opportunity to visit their United States Representatives. Visits were made with legislative directors of U.S. Senator Rand Paul, U.S. Congressman Mitch McConnell, and U.S. House of Representatives, Honorable Ed Whitfield.

During the meeting with U.S. Representative Whitfield, he presented the Muhlenberg Job Corps Center with a Congressional Record recognizing the 50th Anniversary of Job Corps. Congressman Whitfield states, “I am honored to represent two of these outstanding centers: the Muhlenberg Job Corps Center in Greenville, Kentucky and the Earle C. Clements Job Corps Center in Morganfield. These centers are true assets to their communities. I have visited these centers in person, and I have met with educators, staff and students. It is the students who are the true testament to the success of this program, and I am moved each time I visit with them and hear how much Job Corps has changed their lives. I cofounded the Friends of Job Corps Congressional Caucus in 2006 because I believe in this program. I congratulate Job Corps on its fifty years of success, and I hope it will continue to enrich the lives of many more young people in the years to come.”
