Atterbury’s Community Commitment: Networks With State Representatives

Atterbury Job Corps Center accepted the opportunity to be the door prize sponsor for the November 18th, Franklin Indiana, Chamber of Commerce Luncheon.  The luncheon was held at Beeson Hall on the campus of Franklin University. Mrs. Cailey Jones, Career Preparation Period Instructor, created 13 beautiful floral arrangements as the table decoration door prizes. Everyone who attended the luncheon stated the door prizes were a hit.  The Career Preparation Period is a four week introduction to the Atterbury program, where new students work on socialization skills, build a resume, and are active in community service. Atterbury Students from Johnson County, (Franklin is the county seat), were invited to attend. These students were: Damien Mitchell (Franklin), Jonathan Riley (Greenwood), and Melissa Berry (Greenwood).   The students along with Mrs. Jones and Ms. Sivels, Student Government Advisor, enjoyed a hot buffet lunch and received a bird’s eye view of the local business community and state representatives in action. The guest speakers were State Representatives, Woody Burton, Rep. Ralph Foley, Rep. Milo Smith, and State Senator Greg Walker. These government officials spoke on the Indiana House Republican 2011 Legislative Plan. After the luncheon, our students enjoyed speaking to the State Representatives and community business leaders about Atterbury Job Corps, its mission, and the impact the program has had on their lives. They also enjoyed touring a college campus and having their pictures taken with the government officials!!
