A big congratulations to 2021 CCDI graduate, Dominick Gatlin, on the purchase of his first vehicle! Dominick is one of our recent construction trades pathway hires at Wies Drywall and Construction Corp. where he has begun his apprenticeship as a carpenter with St. Louis-Kansas City Carpenters Regional Council!

As an active student in our program, Dominick was awarded a vehicle assistance scholarship to go towards a down payment. In partnership with St. Louis Community Credit Union and the “Sure Rides” program, CCDI helped Dominick in navigating the financials in establishing credit and going through the first time loan process. CCDI would like to thank Dominick’s mentor, Scott Rahn, for helping him select the right vehicle at Pundmann Ford! Thank you to everyone who helped connect the dots to get Dominick his first set of wheels!
