Having completed her Medical Administrative Assistant Certification, Akeli is leaving Glenmont to work as a full-time Medical Administrative Assistant at $13/hour. She secured the position, while on home work-based learning.

“I will have my own desk and I am excited to start working!” she said.

While at Glenmont Job Corps Center, Akeli Newman also obtained her TASC certification and on her last day in Job Corps, she got her 12.9 in Math! Akeli was a model student on center, and assisted staff in various outreach and recruiting events and was always a wonderful leader for her peers.

She is a great example of how hard work and determination at Job Corps can change a person’s life and get them on a career path.
