Mt. Clemens Career Center
Submitted by Evylon Hubbard
Terrell was hired by Drake Enterprises as an on-the-job training (OJT) participant for a CNC Machinist at $17.20 per hour. Funded with a Going PRO Apprenticeship grant, Terrell completed 232 hours of OJT. He is in his first year of the CNC Operator Apprenticeship which includes courses at Macomb Community College. He has displayed a tremendous degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition toward his education. Terrell was recognized last semester for being the only student in his class with no errors on any assignments or exams for the entire semester. Working full-time while learning on-the-job and going to school while balancing responsibilities with his family is not easy, but he’s shown that he’s up to the challenge and has earned a pay increase.
