Hear from Lonnie

“I was trying to be a grown man in a little boy world…anyone can take the wrong road.”

Lonnie graduated from Jobs for Life in the summer of 2010 and completed a Warehouse Readiness program later that year. He went to work at National Guard Products, was hired for temporary work and then made permanent, and recently reached his anniversary for 2 years of permanent employment. He’s learned welding during that time, and is now a skilled MIG welder. Meet Lonnie…one of the hardest working people we know.
