My name is Trevor Harris and I recently graduated from the WIOA program. In October 2021 I was released from TDCJ after serving 4 years in prison. I was eager and hungry to provide a way to support not only myself, but also my family. Before I had been incarcerated, I worked a few different jobs- construction, oilfield, and a few other areas. But I felt now I was at a time in my life that I had to make a decision on what it is I’m going to do. I had heard about the Texas Workforce providing help to receive my CDL license; doubtful it would happen for me, I thought I still have to try. Mrs. Reyes at the Lubbock, Texas Workforce office went above and beyond to help find me a spot in their program. Since I graduated in February 2022, I have received a job driving in the oilfield, making good money to provide for my family with room for growth in that field of work. I strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a career to apply with the WIOA program.
