Jobs Fair/Career Day a sucess for Jemison and Chilton County

Dear Editor,

On April 26, Judicial Correction Services partnered with the city of Jemison to provide a County-Wide Jobs Fair/Career Day.

I just want to take a minute to share my appreciation for the sincere desire of Mayor Eddie Reed and the city of Jemison to make Jemison the very best it can be. This true concern for the residents both young and old is what made this event such a success.

We had 400-plus in attendance with opportunities for both employment and high education. Mayor Reed and JCS representatives, including the state director and regional managers, were on hand to greet and guide the participants. I manage offices in four counties, and it’s my desire to work with each area to provide these services.

I’d like to thank Mayor Reed and the city of Jemison for the instrumental part they played. They provided the Jemison City Complex and staff.

Mayor Reed and JCS share the desire for community involvement that will help the city of Jemison and all Chilton County residents in the job market and to steer our youth to a more desirable future. If we kept a single person off the street and out of trouble by guiding them to the source of a job opportunity or higher education, it was indeed a great day.

Again, I’d like to thank all of the vendors for coming and sharing their time and efforts to better our community, and we expect the second annual event to be bigger and better.

Steven Raymond, Judicial Correction Services
