Daily Progress, Jacksonville, TX

Jacksonville College freshman learned life lessons — much about 'The Real World' — working for the city this summer

' I made friends, made money, got my first Texas ID card, started my very first account here locally at Austin Bank and learned a lot about work ethic.'



Really, what Mr. Cole and his people have to offer youngsters like me is a lot, A LOT, more than a simple summer work program.

It's REAL WORLD 101. And I think I earned a "C Minus" this summer — if THAT. :-)

My thanks to City Manager Mo Raissi and Mr. Cole for this fantastic opportunity.
