Coffey said that the program is perfect for those who want to get into the workforce but don’t know where to start. Hand and Coffey agreed that it was their goal to walk them through the process and show them that it’s possible to succeed in a career.

“It’s a serious commitment, but it’s an awesome program,” said Hand. “We want to help you.”

In addition to job skills training the program can also help students complete their GED or obtain a driver’s license.

The graduates celebrated their achievement on Friday with a reception at the Gulf Coast State College Gulf/Franklin Center with a luncheon. Students were congratulated by Hand and Coffey along with County Commissioner Tan Smiley.

The goal of Gulf County Workforce Board is to provide leadership, oversight, guidance and assistance to institutions and individuals by delivering training and workforce services in order to meet the employment needs of Bay, Gulf, and Franklin Counties.
