TI_gionnipriceTreasure Island Job Corps Center Cement Masonry student Gionni Price has accomplished many things since he came to the Center.

Within a week in his trade, he obtained his OSHA-10 and OSHA-30 certification and managed to pass his Test of Adult Basic Education on the first try. He soon became a foreman in his trade, where he led the class and exemplified to other students what it takes to be a leader. He has been a great help to other students, especially those new to the trade.

Gionni was a Floor Representative for his dorm, where he handled student concerns and made sure their voices were heard at the Student Government Association (SGA). He was named Student of the Month for the dorm multiple times. Gionnia also works at the SGA store, where he receives real life experience with customer service. He recently received his Driver’s Permit.

He is the first person in his family to obtain a high school diploma, which makes him passionate about furthering his education. Gionni recently enrolled into the Center’s college program so he can pursue his interest in Audio Engineering.
