Austin Training Program Works Closely with Gary Job Corps

Reps. Sean Forkner & Maria Robles, Austin Training Coordinator Bobby Vasquez, and Apprentice Naomi Gloria with Gary Job Corps students

The Austin Carpenters Training Center recently welcomed students from Gary Job Corps Center’s carpentry & lathing vocational programs. In addition to seeing the technical training capabilities, the group had a chance to talk with Council Reps Sean Forkner (also Local 1266 president) and Maria Robles (also Council Sisters in the Brotherhood coordinator).

As an unexpected but very much welcomed perk, the students met Naomi Gloria, a Gary Job Corps graduate and current Local 1266 apprentice. Naomi was attending an Interior Systems class at the time. She is excelling at her job and is proving to be a great example of what our apprenticeship program can accomplish.
