SLIDESHOW: Job Corps graduation

Ottumwa Courier

OSKALOOSA — The Job Corps Ottumwa campus held its first graduation Friday morning, a major milestone for the almost two-year-old facility.

The ceremony marked the end of Job Corps training for the students and the beginning of their next steps. While students don't have to go directly into the workforce (military enlistment and further education are also options), they are expected to have a clear plan for moving forward.
