"This automotive training is a true reflection of the quality of our customized programs," said Eilish McDonagh-Hermer, Oakton senior manager, Workforce Solutions. "Attending the automotive graduation is always one of the highlights of my job. This program provides students with a career path and is an amazing collaboration. We are excited to continue these types of relationships with business partners in Oakton's community."

 

At the graduation ceremony, Rose Chavira, career pathways assistant manager for YJC, told the graduates: "It was amazing to see all of you grow over the last few weeks. This will open career opportunities for you. Beautiful things are coming your way."

 

And Cannon agrees.

 

"I've always wanted to work with my hands. Receiving my certificate meant a great deal to me because it provided me with skills I can use for the rest of my life. The program was so focused on hands-on learning and will definitely help me find a job in the automotive field," he said.
