Ricky Reynolds first dreamt of a career as an electrician more than eight years ago, and now that dream is finally being realized as he and several others graduated IBEW 26’s 5-year program last weekend to become full-fledged journeymen. "We feel like brothers after all these years,” said Reynolds, "and we have challenged each other to be the best we can be.” Reynolds landed the IBEW apprenticeship after graduating from the Community Services Agency’s (CSA) Building Futures program in 2010. “Dreams come true for those who dare believe in themselves,” said CSA Client Services Coordinator Sylvia Casaro Dietert, “and Ricky Reynolds believed that he could do this despite all odds.” Contact Casaro Dietert at [email protected] for more information on the 6-week Building Futures pre-apprenticeship program; visit the CSA website here.
