Red Rock Job Corps Center

Red Rock auto technology grad enjoying life in Rockies

November 20th, 2019


Lotus Dodson-Cartier arrived at Red Rock Job Corps Center from Philadelphia in August 2016, and quickly acclimated to her vocation. She already obtained a high school diploma, so she was able to devote her time to Auto Technology.
She was a mentor to her classmates, and a role model across Center. She was a serious student, but also enjoyed people. Lotus assisted the community by participating in many community service trips to area food pantries and other events.
Lotus graduated from Red Rock in April 2017 and transferred to the United Auto Workers Advanced Toyota 10 program at Clearfield Job Corps Center in Clearfield, UT.
Her instructors at Clearfield say that Lotus worked hard in her Toyota training and excelled in her classes. While enrolled in the AT Program, she passed three ASE certification exams, and successfully completed internships at two local Toyota dealerships. Lotus graduated advanced training earlier this year, and is currently employed as a Line Tech Apprentice at Big Horn Toyota in Glenwood Springs, CO.
Bob Beck, Clearfield JCC Toyota 10 advanced training coordinator says, “Lotus was a great student and is a gifted singer, writer and technician. Lotus really enjoys her new job and she is on schedule to become a Master Diagnostic Technician in a short time.”
She thanks the staff at Red Rock and UAW for her success!
