Corpsmember Success Story: Luis Cruz

 

From the October 2012 edition of Corps Conection - the Sequoia Community Corps Newsletter 
 
Luis Cruz has been an outstanding member of the Sequoia Community Corps for five years. After a friend told him about the Corps, Luis joined to learn valuable job skills.  Luis has learned how to complete projects such as plumbing, electrical, HVAC repair and more. 
 
One of Luis’ most memorable experiences as a member of the Corps is assisting a disabled Porterville resident.  She was unable to find work and wasn’t comfortable in her home.  Luis helped install new windows, doors and a stove.  The resident was extremely grateful and Luis was very happy to help someone that really needed it.
 
After he completes the Corps, Luis hopes to use his skills to help people and to find employment in the construction industry.
