Friday was graduation day for 15 very special students who took part in an eight-week job readiness program. They've been working on their personal skills to help them land, for most of them, their very first job.

"Today represents the graduation of the people we support in our workshop that are transitioning into community employment," said Troy Allen, Director of SRVS Industries. "They come into the career center to get the soft skills to train them to become eligible for community employment, so that they are successful. We want to make sure they have all the skills that they need so when the go out they can do anything that they are asked to do and the can do it to the best of their ability."

There may have been happier graduates somewhere this spring but I have been to a lot of graduations over the past 60 some odd years and O do not believe I have ever seen happier families, teachers and students than I saw at the SRVS Industries graduation.

Think about it, these 15 graduates are about to embark on a new life, and for the people who hire them it will also be a life-changing experience.

So do you come in? Well, if you own a small business or a large business like FedEx, hire these people. They want to work.
