Elected Officials Speak About Support For Job Corps
In video recordings, elected officials from varying levels offered support for selected MTC Job Corps Center staff and students.
In a video message to the Clearfield, UT Job Corps, Utah Republican Representative Blake Moore said, “As I look back on my life (when I was a kid) I remember seeing the impacts that you were creating for our communities, that Job Corps was involved with. And to be in this role and being able to be involved—it really is an honor.” Also speaking about Clearfield Job Corps was Utah Republican U.S. Senator Mitt Romney. “Over the past two years, each of you has faced new challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic. You’ve pivoted to online learning. Increased your capacity to ensure the wellness of students and created new opportunities for study activity. I can’t think of a better group to successfully rise above the challenges of covid, because helping others rise above their own challenges is what you do, every day.” Next, the Turner Job Corps out of Albany Georgia was addressed by Democratic Georgia U.S. Representative Sanford D. Bishop. Speaking with optimism, Bishop indicated:
“As we emerge from the pandemic and return to classrooms and offices, you have my pledge as the co-chair of the bipartisan job corps caucus, that I will do everything that I can to ensure that the program is ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century.”
The Earle C. Clements Job Corps out of Morganfield, Kentucky was highlighted by Kentucky Secretary of State Michael G. Adams.
“I want to take a moment to personally thank the staff of the Earle C Clements Job Corps Center for the outstanding work that you do,” Adams said. “Not only is the Earle C Clements Center our nation’s second-largest job corps program, it’s Union County’s second-largest employer with over 1000 students and more than 370 employees—when at full capacity.”
Finally, the Mayor of Morganfield, Kentucky, Randy Greenwell provided his thoughts on the Earle C Clements Job Corps Center. “On behalf of myself, and everyone with the city of Morganville, I’d like to thank the staff and everyone involved with Job Corps for all that you do.” Greenwell continued, “I realize that sometimes it feels like a thankless job, but there are a lot of us out there that thank you and depend on you—every day.”
