The Economic Opportunity Act was meant to enable the poor to pull themselves up from the grasp of poverty. Most sections of the Act have been rescinded; however, Job Corps proved so valuable that it continues today.

Terrell, Acting National Director This year, 2014, marks a historic occasion. Job Corps was established over 50 years ago when the Economic Opportunity Act was signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The Forest Service was in a unique position in 1964 as the agency worked with the Department of Labor to establish Job Corps Centers in national forests. Back then, over 47 different Job Corps Centers were established in 31 states. Other agencies such as the Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, or Fish and Wildlife Service also established centers; but the largest number of centers was established on Forest Service land. Today, the Forest Service is the only Federal agency managing 28 Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers in 18 states. The vision of Sargent Shiver (founder of Job Corps) and Forest Service leaders at that time has put the agency on a path to connect young people to conservation and the mission of the agency which is to care for the land and serve people.

2 Page 2 provide a solid foundation for economically disadvantaged young people to reach their potential and succeed both in their communities and careers. What is not as widely known is that the U.S. Forest Service had a central role in designing Job Corps. In Job Corps, Forest Service leaders, men like then Forest Service Chief Edward P. Cliff, Deputy Chief Clare Hendee, District Ranger and Forest Supervisor Jack Deinema, future Forest Service Chief Max Peterson, and Ed Shultz and Clayton Weaver in the Division for Administrative Management, saw an opportunity and seized it. full economic and social The potential United States as a nation can achieve only if its every individual has the opportunity to contribute to the full extent of his capabilities and to participate in the workings of our society. It is therefore, the policy of the United States to eliminate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty in this Nation by opening to everyone the opportunity for education and training, the opportunity to work, and the opportunity to live in decency and dignity."...no Longer America s Best Kept Secret (continued from page 1) Dating back to the depression era Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) of the 1930s, which provided room, board and employment to millions of unemployed young people, the Forest Service has a history of involvement in employment programs with a rich legacy of land stewardship that serve people and natural resources alike. These Forest Service leaders exhibited strong support, understanding, and commitment to the Job Corps program. For these men, Job Corps was a new opportunity to conserve and develop human resources as well as the nation s abundant natural resources. Forest Service Job Corps is a rare alignment of real life solutions to the challenges of youth unemployment and the urgent need to protect our nation s natural resources. Today, Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers continue to shape the values and attitudes of America s youth toward nature and their role in protecting our natural resources for future generations. They are building a cadre of young people whose education and skills are being used in conservation projects that are restoring our natural resources and revitalizing rural economic development, while lifting our youth out of poverty. The work that occurs each and every day by Job Corps students and staff showcases our nation s wise and continuing investment in the conservation of America s natural resource not just our land, but our young people s lives.

3 Page 3 From the Desk of the National Office (continued from page 1) Over the next several months, (the Job Corps program will be working with staffs in the National Forest System and the State and Private Forestry-Fire & Aviation Staff to forward our commitment to connect young people to conservation. Already, through the work of a number of people, we have seen progress in getting more Job Corps students trained to serve on fire crews, camp crews, or fuels crews. Soon, some of our students will be working on wilderness projects to develop and build kiosks and scales in the backcountry at some of the most pristine and beautiful Wilderness areas around the country. This project will seize on an opportunity to integrate the 50 th anniversary of Job Corps with the 50 th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Late this spring we will work with Human Resources to get students hired permanently through Pathways or as a member of a Public Lands Corps. Richard Louv wrote in Last Child in the Woods Saving Our Children from Nature- Deficit Disorder, at the very moment that the bond is breaking between the young and the natural world, a growing body of research links our mental, physical, and spiritual health directly to our association with nature in positive ways. Now is the time to get our young people out into the woods to not only connect them to nature, but to also work with them to become citizen stewards to take care of the land that is ours to treasure.

On March 22, 1965, United States Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman and Arkansas Governor Orval Faubus welcomed over several hundred people to the opening ceremony. Ralph Kunz, a career National Forest Service employee, was the first center director. By the end of Ouachita s fourth year of operation, it had trained over 850 corpsmen and completed over $1,000,000 on National Forest System Lands (NFS) and oncenter. Completed projects included the Oden Ranger Office Building, the Jessiveville Ranger Office Building, the Mazarn Recreation Area, the Charton Campfire Theater, and the Hickory Nut Vista Road. Today, the center continues this proud tradition; in Program Year 2013, the center contributed 5,340 hours of volunteer work on NFS Lands and thousands of hours to local community projects.

4 Page 4 Job Corps Helps Celebrate the Wilderness Act s 50th Anniversary Cyndi Szymanski, Natural Liaison, Job Corps National Office 2014 marks the 50 th Anniversary o the Wilderness Act, signed into law September 3 rd, It also marks Job Corps 50 th Anniversary signed into law on August 23 rd, This coincidence provides an opportunity for JCCCC students to partner with the National Forest Service (NFS) System on several anniversary activities. JCCCC students will construct trailhead entrance kiosks and pack scales; visit Wilderness areas to install the kiosks and scales; and, assist with trail construction, clean up and maintenance. Ralph Swain, Region 2 Wilderness coordinator, says This is a great opportunity to marry Job Corps skills with Forest Service needs while simultaneously exposing a new generation of students to Wilderness values. Wilderness can be a foreign concept for the uninitiated so this provides some great exposure to our JCCCC students, encouraging them to consider a career as a Wilderness manager. This is a great opportunity to marry Job Corps skills with Forest Service needs while simultaneously exposing a new generation of students to Wilderness values. Wilderness can be a foreign concept for the uninitiated so this provides some great exposure to our JCCCC students, encouraging them to consider a career as a Wilderness manager. Ralph Swain, R2 Wilderness Coordinator For many JCCCC students this will be their first opportunity to visit wilderness, as joining JCCCC may have been their first exposure to National Forests. Ideally this exposure will plant a seed of interest for students in these special areas either for personal recreation or as a future career. As for JCCCC students, they will showcase their carpentry, production and installation skills. Collbran JCCCC students will create th Anniversary awards for distribution at the October, 2014 Wilderness conference in Albuquerque, NM (October 15-19). A wilderness, in contrast with those areas where man and his own works dominate the landscape, is hereby recognized as an area where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man, where man himself is a visitor who does not remain." The Wilderness Act Tim Parlove, United Brotherhood of Carpenters-National Job Corps Training Fund, Inc. Trade Instructor at Collbran JCCCC, says Any opportunity to expose our students to a production environment with deadlines is always welcomed. Students will approach this assignment by setting up teams, assessing output quality, tracking units produced per hour and per day, and adjusting production schedules as needed. It creates a real work environment and allows students to work on planning skills in addition to their carpentry skills. JCCCC students at eight additional centers will construct wilderness kiosks and backpack scales, traveling to wilderness trailheads to install the kiosks and participate in Wilderness clean ups and other activities. Students will work alongside Forest Service Staff, wilderness partners and committed citizens to commemorate the Wilderness Act. Making connections between JCCCC students, the National Forests and these Wilderness areas will create future stewards for these areas, allowing them to be protected and preserved for the next 50 years and beyond. Looking to add professional, trained, youthful, diverse staff to your project or office? A Forest Service Job Corps Mobile Corps can be a valuable addition to your next project. Mobile Corps projects are larger scale, multi-student and/or multi-center projects. These projects have ranged from painting/maintenance at Grey Towers Historical site, building smaller buildings and campsite projects, to the construction of ranger stations and staff housing. A formal application process must be completed for project consideration: contact Cyndi Szymanski at for additional information. The Camino Real Ranger Station project, completed in 2011, entailed demolishing a 2,000 sq. ft. structure and constructing a 6,500 sq. ft. energy efficient structure. Over 500 Job Corps students utilized their vocational skills during the building construction. Photo courtesy of GakStonn Imagery

5 Page 5 New Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center Fire Program Alicia D. Bennett, Public Affairs Officer, Job Corps National Office On March 15, 2013, Chief Tom Tidwell announced an innovative partnership between Job Corps Civilian Conservation Centers and Fire and Aviation Management (F&AM). This partnership will expand the importance of the Job Corps program in filling future fire management positions in the Forest Service. The partnership between JCCCC and F&AM will formalize the expansion of fire programs over the next five years beginning in Centers included in the first phase include: Boxelder, Centennial, Collbran, Curlew, Harpers Ferry, Pine Ridge, Weber Basin, and Wolf Creek. The phased approach will allow the training and development of both students and programs at all 28 JCCCCs. F&AM has committed to admitting 10% of graduating JCCCC students into the Fire Apprenticeship Program. Successful Job Corps students may be recruited as apprentices for the Wildland Fire Apprentice Program (WFAP). WFAP will be one of the training programs for new firefighter hires to better meet the demands for a professional, highly-skilled, and diverse wildland fire management workforce. Upon completion of program requirements, Job Corps students will have the opportunity to compete for permanent or seasonal appointments. For more information, contact Jane Eide, Fire Program Coordinator at or Raquel Stanton, Administrative Assistant, at In 2013, 1,514 Job Corps students were deployed to 177 fire assignments, working a total of 1,301 days and 123,009 hours.

6 Page 6 A Curlew Job Corps Graduate Demonstrates How Determination Turns Obstacles into Opportunities Alicia D. Bennett, Job Corps National Office The instructors and students at Job Corps helped me learn the Job Corps motto that determination turns obstacles into opportunities. Nobody gave up on me. Tim Estes Tim Estes is on the Montana Mill Fire in August Photo courtesy of James Beckwith Right Click to view the video: Chinese orphans reunite accidentally at Winter Park There is a Chinese proverb that captures the essence of a young man born in China in 1992, adopted by American parents in 2006 right before he turned 14 and who graduated from a Forest Service Civilian Conservation Center in 2012 at age 20: Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still. Tim Estes, a graduate of Curlew Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center in Washington State, is not afraid to grow. Nor does he stand still. Estes began life in the Henan Luoyang Orphanage in Luoyang, China, where he was born with a heart defect. After walking just three feet, I would become so exhausted that I would have to sit down and rest, said Estes. In China, once a boy or girl turns 14, he or she becomes an aging out child who must live independently and is no longer eligible for adoption. Tim credits his adoptive parents, Peggy and Andy Estes from Seattle, for turning his life around and giving him the opportunity to become part of a family. I want to make other people feel the way I felt after my parent s adopted me, says Tim. In Seattle, Estes struggled to catch up to his grade level in Tim Estes at the 49 Degrees North Ski Resort on the Colville National Forest in Photo courtesy of Seth Krohn school. A high school counselor suggested that the individualized attention he would receive at Job Corps would help him succeed. When I entered Curlew Job Corps, I could complete fifth-grade math, but I could read only at a second-grade level, Estes said. Tim entered Curlew s carpentry program where he overcame many challenges. Al Eveland, my carpentry instructor, told me that you get out of Job Corps what you put in to it, Estes said. When I heard that, I decided I would put all I have into getting everything I could out of Curlew. Estes also served on Curlew s fire crew. According to squad boss Bodie Kjolseth, Tim was one of the hardest workers I have ever seen. I had to make him take breaks while we were working long shifts. He was always willing to volunteer for something new. Other students were afraid to use the radio and he stepped right up and not only read the weather observations over our crew channel, but read it to the entire division on the fire. You never had to worry whether Tim was working when he was out of your sight. If someone needed help, he would jump right in. The instructors and students at Job Corps helped me learn the Job Corps motto that determination turns obstacles into opportunities. Estes said. I worked day and night and was transformed from an immature kid to a mature adult. I was unknowledgeable when I arrived, but a knowledgeable person when I graduated. After finishing the Job Corps program in 2011, Estes travelled to Denver to join Ameri- Corps, where he would gain confidence, master additional work skills and earn money for college. AmeriCorps has taken Estes to Arkansas, New York, Texas, Colorado, and Missouri; however, it was an experience in March 2013, that brought the world full circle for him. A member of the AmeriCorps Ski Team, one of Tim s service assignments involved conducting ski camps for the blind and sight impaired at Winter Park Ski Resort in Colorado. Melody Kadzis, from Jacksonville, Florida, seemed familiar to Tim. A short conversation between the two quickly established that Tim and Melody both grew up in the Henan Luoyang Orphanage in Central China. The odds of Tim and Melody being united on the other side of the world are improbable. Tim and Kadzis exchanged phone numbers and plan to keep in touch. Estes AmeriCorps service ended in July and he is beginning the next stage of his life finding a full-time job, with the hope of pursuing a career with the U.S. Forest Service. Now 21, his Job Corps and AmeriCorps work as a firefighter, disaster aid worker, carpenter, conservationist, and teacher for at-risk children have equipped him with marketable skills and experience, he says. I earned my GED in April, says Tim. Now I need to find a job and a place to live. I want to be a good person, become financially independent, and eventually have a family, he emphasized. I want to go to college and have a brighter future, says Estes. No individual s success is guaranteed; however, it is almost certain that Tim will not be lingering on his road ahead.

Bennett, Public Affairs Officer, Job Corps National Office Kayla May Marsh at the CCC Legacy Gathering in Tucson, AZ on October 25, Photo courtesy of John Irish Kayla G. May-Marsh is an example of why generalizations do not always apply to young people choosing to enter Job Corps. Before enrolling in Job Corps, Kayla was awarded a B.A. Degree from the University of Tennessee in May of Kayla graduated with a triple major in Philosophy, Psychology, and French. Yet, even with her successful college career, the job market was tough and competitive and she found herself working unfulfilling, minimum wage jobs. Kayla sought the advice of her mother, who suggested Job Corps as an alternative. My mother encouraged me to attend Job Corps to learn a trade and skill that I could use to be a productive citizen of this country, says Kayla. Taking Mom s advice, in August 2013, Kayla enrolled in the Oconaluftee JCCCC. She quickly determined that she was interested in a career as an electrician. I wanted to learn to work with electrical energy and eventually renewable resources like solar, wind or thermal alternatives. My intention is to contribute to restructuring our electrical grid to a more environmentally conscious and sustainable design, says Kayla. After graduating from Job Corps, Kayla was offered a job by the Haskins Electric, LLC, located in Phoenix, AZ. She helps construct homes in a retirement community. Haskins emphasizes quality and attention to detail, but they are even more insistent on speed and efficiency, says Kayla. I ve found myself struck throughout the day by the tremendous appreciation for the training and instruction I received at Oconaluftee, she adds. Kayla said her wage rate was initially disappointing; however, she also knows her wages will rise. There are certainly opportunities to grow here, so I m going to continue to grow my skills. When John Irish, Vice-President of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Legacy requested a speaker from Forest Service Job Corps for the CCC Legacy s 80 th anniversary gathering in Tucson, AZ, Kayla was a natural choice. Kayla was very articulate and she is an excellent advocate for the Civilian Conservation Centers, says John. Kayla s mother, Nicki Marsh, also attended the gathering, which made the event even more special for Kayla.

When asked about her future goals, Kayla says that in five years, she sees herself more advanced in her career. Finally, when asked how she had changed because of her Job Corps experience, Kayla stated, To put it simply, I grew. Job Corps provided a safe and motivating environment for me to recover from a recent personal loss, and the structure and encouragement to move forward with my life in a productive way.

8 Page 8 Job Corps Graduate Cassandra Ramos Pays It Forward Clara Johnson, Job Corps Liaison, Region 9 I took one big step onto that bus and look where it got me - a good job with insurance and retirement and a future and meeting lots of new people. Cassandra Ramos Cassandra s success started when she left Santa Maria, CA, and enrolled at the Wolf Creek Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center (JCCCC) in Glide, OR. Santa Maria is a city in Southern California, 120 miles northwest of Los Angeles. It is known for its wine industry and Santa Maria-style barbecue. As violence, drugs and gang activity increased, retirees and families left, leaving a bleak future for those who remained. I didn t see my life changing as long as I stayed, said Cassandra. Cassandra s high school recommended her to the Big Brother Big Sister Program and there she met Kimberly. Kimberly was the first person who believed in me and taught me about the good in the world. She was the first person to care for me. Open to the world of possibilities in Glide, she sharpened her natural resources/forestry skills. She improved her education and gained life, communication, and finance skills. She mastered the Global Positioning System (GPS), forestry tools, measurement tools and learned about tree identification, tree care and chain saw operation. She volunteered for most leadership programs and graduated 18 months later. I felt a sense of relief and happiness but missing everyone. I also knew that my classmates, who viewed me as the class clown, outgoing, helpful to others, friendly and not shallow, honest and straight forward, would miss me. They all knew that I would succeed. After graduation from Wolf Creek, she applied for a fire apprentice program. She did not get the job. Not giving up, she applied for an advanced forestry program at the Schenck JCCCC in North Carolina. She was accepted. For the next 16 months, she studied, learned, and earned her red card as a Type II Firefighter. She traveled to the Shoshone National Forest in Dubois, WY, as a reforestation technician and completed a five month required assignment, two of these months working alone. In the spring of 2012, Cassandra took a permanent position in timber management on the Huron-Manistee NF, in Oscoda, MI. She brought with her a backpack of clothes. She borrowed a bike, walked almost everywhere, rented a cabin and purchased a vehicle. I used everything Job Corps taught me. It helped me get everything I have now job, house and vehicle. Along with her marking crew duties, Cassandra staffed a fire engine during high fire danger on the forest. The Little Mack Fire, an 800-acre jack pine fire required the crew to work all night. I was scared it was amazing how the jack pine lights up and has its own voice and changes direction I realized how important communication is on a fire. I told Ben (Ben Eby- Engine Captain) I wanted to be a firefighter. A few months later Cassandra and a 20-person crew traveled to assist with Hurricane Sandy cleanup in New Jersey and Connecticut, her first time to the East Coast. Cassandra is currently on a 120-day detail as a lead timber marker. She will start her pay it forward initiative when the new Job Corps/Forest Program starts this March. The first life lesson I will share with the students will be don t assume anything. Don t assume that what is around you is all evil the world is so big and there is so much out there. Cassandra on the Huron-Manistee National Forest in January Photo courtesy of Elizabeth McNichols People are always coming in and out of your life. Every person can pass on a tool to help you. People are messengers. People give you tools that you need in that part of your life. Cassandra Ramos

10 Page 10 Huron-Manistee National Forest Finds Innovative Ways to Partner with Forest Service Job Corps Clara Johnson, Job Corps Liaison, Region 9 In July 2010, the Chief told more than 100 students at the Forest Service Harpers Ferry Job Corps Center, "You are part of the Forest Service, a part of the agency - I want you to understand that. And after graduation, I'd like you to consider working for the Forest Service. We want to entice you to have a career with the service." For more than seven years, the agency has aggressively recruited Job Corps students and developed programs to make these statements a reality. In 2012, Charles Barron II, Heavy/Fire Equipment Operator for the Huron-Manistee NF had an idea. Why not bridge the Job Corps heavy equipment program with ours? From this idea came a unique proposal to transport students enrolled in the Anaconda, Cass, Fort Simcoe, Jacobs Creek, and Mingo Job Corps Centers heavy equipment programs to the Huron-Manistee NF for three weeks. Once on site, students would learn and operate different types of heavy equipment while completing projects, and learning about Forest Service operations. The students also would benefit from tours of the Michigan Caterpillar Facility, Michigan Army National Guard Facility, and the Consumers Energy Ludington Pump Storage Project in addition to learning about the Ferris State University Heavy Equipment Program. This is a great way for the Forest Service to expose students to career opportunities in the Forest Service, said Charles. They will be able to build their operating skills, see how we operate during wildland fire operation and position themselves for a better opportunity within the Forest Service, while helping meet other program needs. Heavy equipment operations are an integral component of fire management and the Forest Service. Visiting Civilian Conservation Centers and building long term relationships with the various technical programs allows heavy equipment experts an opportunity to connect with youth on a personal and professional level, while exposing them to different career opportunities within the National Forests.

Great Onyx Students and Staff Learn Realistic Reasons not to Drink or Drug and Drive Joseph Hauck, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Specialist, Great Onxy Job Corps On December 17, 2013, Great Onyx Job Corps hosted a simulation-supported live training for emergency response to a mock alcohol and drug related automobile accident, part of National Drug Facts Week, a health observance week for teens that aims to shatter the myths about drugs and drug abuse. What follows is a re-enactment of an event that Great Onyx Job Corps hopes will create awareness of the dangers of drinking, drugging, and driving. There is an emergency in the Administration Parking Lot, Wellness Staff please the respond Center Administrative Officer Melissa Vincent s voice broke through the silence on the center radios. Twice more the call was made by Ms. Vincent and the Wellness Staff finally responded on the third call. Ms. Vincent broke the silence of the radios again with the announcement, 911 has been dialed. Great Onyx nursing staff members Rita Bush and Jamie Priddy arrived on the scene to assess a crash scene for possible dangers. Three Foreground (L to R) Jason Vincent, JAWS of Life; Daniel Highbaugh, JAWS of Life; Jamie Priddy, LPN GOJC; Mike Clubb, JAWS of Life (at Driver s Door). Background (L to R) Daniel Massey, JAWS of Life (On JAWS Vehicle); Matt Sanders, LVFD (next to fire pumper), Steve Sanders, LVFD Chief. minutes later, just as units from the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department, Edmonson County EMS Director, Edmonson County JAWS of Life, and Edmonson County Ambulance Service began responding, Great Onyx students and staff assembled at the crash scene. The paramedics were quickly informed of the status of the victims and the JAWS crew began their preparation for stabilization and transportation of both victims. The Mammoth Cave National Park Rangers arrived a few minutes later to begin their investigation of the drunk and drugged driver. A field sobriety test was administered to Great Onyx Assistant Work Programs Officer Gary Sayer, the drunk and drugged (continued on page 12) The Hidden Dangers of Unexploded Ordinances Daniel Frye, Safety Officer, Pine Ridge Job Corps Detonation cord found in trash can Photo courtesy of Daniel Frye Unexploded ordnance (UXOs), weapons that did explode when they were employed, continue to pose a substantial safety risk to the American public. The detonators of ordnances many years old can deteriorate, making them more sensitive to disturbance and handling. On November 28, 2013, I traveled to the McKelvie National Forest to observe a bomb squad detonate Trinitrotoluene (TNT) buried on forest lands. The TNT was discovered by an environmental auditor tracing water lines to and from water wells. In the process the auditor noticed a trash can lid lying on the ground in the forest and picked the lid up. The lid was covering a buried trash can containing TNT. A second buried trash can containing TNT was found by an employee from Halsey NE, a short time after the first. A bomb squad was called in to analyze the TNT and to detonate it. The TNT dated Buried trash can with lid opened Photo courtesy of Daniel Frye Explosives inside buried trash can Photo courtesy of Daniel Frye back to the 1960 s. Members of the public should never touch or handle UXOs. Always report the location of UXOs to your local police so that bomb disposal squads can ensure proper disposal.

The more successful we are......realistic Reasons not to Drink or Drug and Drive (continued from page 8) Joseph Hauck, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Specialist, Great Onxy Job Corps Drunk driver Gary Sayer is led away in handcuffs as members of Edmonson County EMS and JAWS of Life extricate crash victim Curtis Haynes from his vehicle. Photo courtesy of Joseph Hauck driving suspect and the second car involved in the accident were searched. National Park Rangers Lance Houk and Doy Russell placed Mr. Sayer under arrest for open containers (open alcohol containers in the vehicle) and possession of a controlled substance that they found in his head band and sock. Meanwhile, members of the Edmonson County EMS, ambulance crew, and Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department loaded Great Onyx Math Teacher Justin Hatchett into an ambulance and began cutting away the driver s door and roof of one of the vehicles in order to extricate Great Onyx Acting Center Director Curtis Haynes. After almost thirty-five minutes, an average amount of time needed to free car accident victims, Mr. Haynes was freed from the crash, placed on a backboard, and loaded into an ambulance. Later Mr. Haynes would describe the experience as a life changing moment as the sounds of the metal cracking and crunching just beside his head made him want to flinch away; however, he could not due to the neck support collar and other medical restraints that he had been put into. I hope that I never have to go through something like that for real. Some students were visibly shaken by the event and many had doubts that the crash was faked. It seemed so real, remarked one student. Another student asked, Are you sure this is not really happening? Great Onyx Mental Health Consultant Tammy Shaffer was on the scene to help any students that might have problems with what they witnessed. Great Onyx students and staff later attended an assembly to answer any questions concerning the event, along with learning more about firsthand accounts of crashes involving alcohol and/or drugs, and alternatives to drinking/drugging and driving or getting into a vehicle with an impaired driver. Great Onyx Job Corps Civilian Conservation Center wishes to express a sincere Thank You to: Edmonson County Ambulance Service; Keith Sanders Edmonson County EMS Director; Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department (Steve Sanders Chief); Edmonson County JAWS of Life, AIR Evac LIFETEAM Bowling Green, KY (Robert Rowland Program Director) for help in planning the event; U.S. Department of the Interior Mammoth Cave National Park, David Alexander (Acting Chief Ranger), Joshua Clemons Mammoth Cave Park Ranger, Lance Houk Mammoth Cave Park Ranger, Doy JAWS of Life being used to rip away the vehicle door in order to extricate crash victim Curtis Haynes from the vehicle.

13 Page 13 Job Corps Employee Profile Meet Elizabeth Libby Bagwell, Property Management Specialist Alicia D. Bennett, Public Affairs Officer, Job Corps National Office Libby relaxes in the outdoors with her favorite grandson. Photo courtesy of Libby Bagwell We didn t know if we were doing you a favor to save your life. We thought you would be a vegetable. A neurologist spoke these words to Libby Bagwell eight months after her head-on car collision in I m thankful that God thought I still had some work to do here, says Libby. Hometown: Charlotte, NC Duty Station: Golden, CO Years with Forest Service: 22 Education: BA, Sociology, Wake Forest University Fun Fact: My husband of 36 years refused to move to Colorado after I took the job so we are coping with a long-distance separation. Favorite Quote: For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. Libby officially began her job as Property Management Specialist in the Job Corps National Office on July 28, However, as an employee of the Southern Research Station, she was already managing the property of the Schenck, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Oconaluftee Job Corps centers in North Carolina. I ve always believed in the mission of the Job Corps program and knew there was a real need for good property management. I was thrilled when I was offered the opportunity to work with all 28 centers fulltime my promotion was icing on the cake! Outside the office, one of the most important pursuits that Libby pours her talent and heart into is raising and training guide dogs for the blind. Not long after leaving her job at the Southern Research Station to work in the Job Corps National Office in Golden, CO, Trooper, a purebred German Shepard, entered Libby s life as an eight week old puppy and also captured the hearts of employees throughout the Forest Service offices before his departure last December. Guide dogs must be exposed early and often to situations that they might encounter as a companion to someone visually impaired. It is my responsibility to prepare Trooper for every situation he might encounter in order to equip him for his future work as a guide, says Libby. Trooper accompanied Libby everywhere she went to ensure that he learned good manners both in private and in public, and training him was a demanding 24/7 operation, particularly since Libby has two dogs of her own with who she could be more lenient. Generally, Libby s dogs stay with her for around 13 months before they are returned to the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind for final training; however, because Libby did not have a group of Puppy I m grateful to be able to take this undeveloped, fluffy bundle of love and help turn him or her into a life-changing companion for someone who s visually impaired. There s nothing more rewarding than watching a beautiful adult dog that you ve trained guide a person down a sidewalk, around obstacles, through doors and to an empty chair with hardly a pause. Libby Bagwell Raisers with which to work while in CO, she determined that Trooper was not being giving the best possibility of fully developing his potential. When she went back to North Carolina for the holidays, she returned him to the school s Field Representative. Trooper is being evaluated to determine if his intelligence, high energy, and confident nature will best be served as a guide dog or in one of the other service arenas for which dogs are trained. Although Libby misses Trooper, his departure will allow her time to pursue some of her other interests like volunteering more of her time to a music Trooper alert to the movements of second floor R2 employees. Photo courtesy of Libby Bagwell and drama program at her church or going out on forest fires. When asked where she sees herself in ten years, Libby says she expects to be retired and back in North Carolina. But she adds, I would still continue to train dogs for the handicapped. Although there are many schools that provide guide dogs for the blind, individuals with other disabilities usually have to pay a lot of money to get a trained service dog. The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind invests more than $55,000 to breed, train and place companion dogs. Individuals with disabilities pay nothing for the dogs or the training. Funding comes solely from individual, group, and corporate donations and foundation grants. Visit to learn more. (L to R) Melanie Woolever, Trooper, Libby Bagwell, Pat Carnes, and Bob Carnes.
