Carpenters Local 409,

Coming from the first semester seeing the graduates that were leaving when I was coming in trying to figure out where they were going to go next and how they would get a job. And now seeing the District come in and actually have a hand in helping us get jobs... it's been a big plus.

It comes back to when I first started at Trade Tech and realized all the hard work I put in at school to get me here. It's gratifying to know that everything I accomplished in school is actually carrying over to my work and it's something that I love to do. Actually it's a blessing just waking up knowing I'm doing something I love to do. I'm just very grateful for the opportunity that was presented to me because of you all.
