“Don’t sell yourself short”, is the advice of Logan Keith. Logan is a graduate of Turning Point Education Center. He achieved his High School Equivalency at our Greene County location in 2018. Logan returned to Turning Point at our Sullivan County location in September of 2020 to enroll in our welding certification classes.
Logan stated he had a lot of obstacles to overcome to reach this point in his life. Logan said, “When I was younger my mother and father did not make good decisions. They were on drugs as long as I can remember. “This caused me to have to be the adult and help care for my parents. At one point, we were even homeless. My mother lost her battle to addiction three years ago and my father was in and out of prison. I quit school in 7th grade and said I would do online, but I did not participate. With trying to survive, education was not a priority. I was going down a bad path and was starting to get into trouble and doing some drugs as well. I moved in with my grandmother. Eventually, I started surrounding myself with better people and the right crowd. I met my girlfriend and we ended up finding out she was pregnant, and I realized that I had to get my life on track and get myself together. I wanted to be a good parent and provide the life for my child that I wish I had growing up, so I jumped on board with the welding classes Turning Point offered. I am not going to lie, it has been a rough road, but it has been well worth it. I am proud of everything that I have overcome in my life. I am thankful for Turning Point and the opportunity they have given me to better myself and my family. I feel good about myself and I feel accomplished in making my grandmother and family proud of me. I know my mother is as well. Turning Point has opened many doors for me that would not have been there.”
Logan completed his welding certification classes and obtained his American Welding Certification in flat, horizontal, and vertical positions on January 8, 2021. Logan has obtained employment with Great Dane at a start wage of $18.50 per hour. Logan is a true success and we are thankful to help many other students++++++ just like Logan.
