Cassidy Suedekum, recent Wind River Job Corps graduate, has a favorite quote from A. A. Milne, “You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
This is a very appropriate quote for the young woman from Firestone, Colorado, who left behind a difficult relationship and life situation by coming up to the beautiful mountains of Riverton, Wyoming.
For some students, the curriculum at Job Corps is more than vocational training, but an education about themselves.
Cassidy learned she could be more vocal and engaged through her participation in extracurricular activities. And she learned about her capabilities through the joint CWC-WRJC (Central Wyoming College and Wind River Job Corps) dental assistant training program. She successfully completed certifications in (BLS) basic life support, radiography, and OSHA10 as well as completing her high school diploma.
Cassidy intends to continue her education in college, studying business management.
Of her experience at Wind River Job Corps, Cassidy says, “My whole quality of life has improved. I know more about myself as a person and what I want in life.”
