Kori Jaminson is a journeyman laborer in her first year. In the summer of 2016, Kori was accepted to the pre-apprentice programs through the Chicago Women in Trades. It was there that she became determined to work hard and become a tradeswoman. While in school, she also worked as a prep cook in a local restaurant. She was approached by Bob Clark, Chairman and CEO of Clayco at a recruiting event and was soon hired to work on the Cook County Central Campus Health Center. Bolstered by her work stability, Kori hopes to continue her professional development and was recently promoted to the role of assistant superintendent.
Malik Johnson has now journeyed out of his labor apprenticeship and is a full-time journeyman working for Clayco. Malik completed his two year minimum laborer apprenticeship in under one year. He boasts an impressive resume of well over 17 certifications. Malik has begun his third year of evening classes at St. Louis Community College this semester with a set goal to obtain his Associates in Applied Science. CCDI is providing the financing for tuition and books. He is interested in furthering his education to become a Safety Engineer. We are happy to report Malik is currently mentoring Clayco’s new labor apprentice, Brian Keaton. We look forward to many great updates from both of these fine young men!
