With the help of North Texas Works, Sterling began attending Pharmacy Technician training at Vernon College in August 2020. Before he completed training, he got a job working part time at United Regional Health Care System as a part-time Pharmacy Technician.
North Texas Works helped Sterling pay for tuition, fees, books, supplies, and transportation.
Sterling finished school in May 2021 and obtained his Pharmacy Tech license. He started working full-time at United Regional when he completed training.
Sterling said, “I would not have been able to attend college or even know where to begin without the help of this program. They helped with tuition, getting supplies I needed for class as well as supplies needed for the job. They were there to help me every step of the way. Thank you all I would not be where I am today without the help of this program. I am now making an excellent life for me and my family and I have the WIOA program and all the workers to thank for that, so from the bottom of my heart thank you all.”
