To a WSD welding teacher from a former offender student -
"I got a job welding and I had to write and just thank you so much for putting me ahead of the game."
NEW - We can learn and be successful - "My life is proof that we can learn and be successful and stay out of trouble."
Education changed my life -
"These opportunities [GED® classes or learning a trade] are great, but WSD is so much more than that; for me it was a change of life."
NEW - Making a positive impact - "I am very excited to be learning a new trade and to be securing employment for myself in the 'real world.'"
