Gary Job Corps alumni visits welding class

Emilio “Milo” Olveda, who went through the welding program at Gary Job Corps in 1975, recently visited the center and told Director Lonnie Hall he is now making a good living.

Born in Mexico, he came to the United States at the age of 5. After graduation from Gary, he worked at a shipyard in Galveston for 10 years, then went into metal fabrication and pipelines. “Gary Job Corps gave me the knowledge that I use today,” he said. 

In addition to visiting with Hall, Olveda posed with current welding students.
