Tower Safety Success Story: 5 Years in Prison to a Successful Wireless Cell Tower Construction Owner
Tower Safety Success Story: 5 Years
in Prison to a Successful Wireless Construction Owner
According to the Bureau of Justice
Statistics the total incarceration rate
in 2011 - 2012 for veterans was 855 per 100,000 veterans in the United States. About 1 in 37
adults (or 2.7% of adults in the United States) was under some form of
correctional supervision at year-end 2015. Telecom Technical School
Director, Kathy Gill, goes into various prisons around the state of Arizona to
work with the incarcerated population and provide them with training and a job
opportunity. Telecom Technical College is committed
to the community to help better individual lives with education and an
opportunity for a career in the wireless industry, and we’re proud to share a
couple success stories that came from this commitment.
We recently offered a student a scholarship from a job fair
we attended at the Department of Corrections.
His dedication of riding his bicycle 20 miles to school every day to
receive training inspired Telecom Technical College to start contacting
potential employers to assist with his job placement and two days after
finishing school, he was successfully working in the wireless industry!
Another success is a man named “Jesse”, who spent 5 years in
federal prison. At the time, he was in a prominent gang selling drugs. During his incarceration, he would tell himself
“I am never going back, I will find a way”.
His wife was left to raise their 4 kids alone, providing food, shelter
and parental guidance as she waited for her husband to be released. Jesse had
several opportunities and choices- selling drugs or become a role model for his
family. He chose family. Jesse is well
respected by many and if he says he is going to do something, he will stand by
his word. His word was to take care of
and today he owns a successful wireless cell tower construction company and
takes care of 30 employees and their families.
His success story is an inspiration to all of us who believe in hard
work and second chances.
