Congratulations to 2021 CCDI grad, JaSean Jones, on the purchase of his first vehicle! CCDI is proud to help another trades pathway student with a down payment and financial literacy guidance to ensure reliable transportation for this young man as he begins his career. Thank you to St. Louis Community Credit Union and the Sure Rides program for assisting JaSean with his first loan.

After graduating from McCluer North High School in May, JaSean was selected for Millstone Weber, LLC’s PAVE summer internship program. This experience helped JaSean solidify his passion for carpentry, as well as gain a new interest from his mentor in restoring and renovating old homes. Thank you to Ms. Vivian Martain for helping to provide this learning opportunity for JaSean and connecting him with a mentor! We wish JaSean the best of luck this week as he goes through interviews to determine where he will begin his next chapter as an apprentice carpenter! Keep up the great work!
