Enter Aaron Terhune, who began his Job Corps training at the Flint Hills Job Corps Center in Kansas and later enrolled at Clearfield Job Corps.
“I came to Clearfield Job Corps,” says Aaron, “with the expectation of a high-quality educational experience, and I was not disappointed.”
Aaron has a passion for repairing cars. He began working in the automotive industry before beginning training at Clearfield Job Corps.
“After having a taste of what the industry had to offer, I knew I had to have more.”
He continues, “Even having worked in the industry, I have been blown away every day by the depth of the knowledge and experience that the instructors bring to the program, and every day has truly felt fulfilling and meaningful.”
