Some lives head down a hard road. A young woman without a job, in an abusive relationship and exposed to drugs doesn’t have a lot to look forward to. Luckily for Keana Silletto, she was thrown a lifeline by her best friend who had already been attending Job Corps. On her advice, Keana enrolled at Wind River Job Corps in Riverton, Wyoming.
Today, Keana is on a totally different road. Now she looks forward to a career she loves as a dental assistant, and a job at Red Rocks Endodontics in Colorado.
Keana spent a lot of her time at Wind River Job Corps studying for courses taken here and at Central Wyoming College, WRJC’s medical program partner. She received her license in radiography, became certified in BLS (basic life support) and OSHA10 safety standards. She also maintained a job in the cafeteria.
This past Dec., 2019 Keana graduated from the program at Wind River Job Corps and will soon leave the residential vocational program.
Her friends and the WRJC faculty see a bright future ahead for Keana.
