Success Story

Travis McFarland came into the Franklin Career Solutions Center in June 2016 for a RESEA Orientation. He had recently been laid off from an offshore company and was hoping to return within a few months. After being unemployed for 7 months due to the oilfield industry not picking up, Travis decided that changing occupations would benefit him and his family. By mid-January, Travis was enrolled in the OJT program. Ezell’s Body Shop hired Travis as an Autobody Repairer. This position allowed Travis to provide an income for his family and come home every night. Travis successfully completed the OJT program on June 19, 2017. Ezell’s Body Shop kept Travis on and he continues to learn new tasks every day. Congratulations Travis!! Photograph CJ Ezell, Owner at Ezell's and Travis
