Kittrell Job Corps Center received a visit from N.C. Rep Nathan Baskerville, D-Henderson, during its Earth Day Every Day celebration April 16-23.

He urged students to look beyond Job Corps and enroll in a community college or university once they had concluded worked at the center. In addition, he described the duties and responsibilities of his positions and then encouraged them to consider entering the fields of medicine, law and government. This would allow them to make a difference both within society as a whole and their communities in particular, as well as reinforcing or increasing their self-esteem.

In turn, the students shared their own goals with him, and presented to him their Earth Day projects and posters. Then, he was taken on a tour of the Academics and Career Technical Training areas, receiving an overview of the program.
