Congressman Steve Pearce (R-District 2) toured the Roswell Job Corps on Thursday to visit trade classes and speak to students about their future plans.
Students showed Pearce their skills in automotive repair, culinary arts and electrical wiring trades. Pearce then engaged students in a discussion about leadership, how to find success and job opportunities.
“Get out and do what it is you are passionate about and earn your success, because you are going to find more happiness and success doing these two things,” Pearce told the students. “Money will come secondary. It doesn’t bring success.”
The students engaged with Pearce in a discussion about jobs and career choices. Pearce also spoke to them about leadership and overcoming obstacles.
“No matter where you start in life, you can do what you want to do,” Pearce told the students.
