Monday, Sept. 11 marked the 3rd anniversary of the observance of the “Day of Remembrance” held on the Gary Job Corps Center.  

“We are happy to share this occasion with our guests, partners, friends, staff and students,” Gary Job Corps Center Director Lonnie Hall said. “It is with a heavy heart that we celebrate this day — our personal involvement is the loss of one of our own, PRC Kristian Menchaca, who lost his life in Iraq. We know that the price of freedom comes with a cost. Gary Job Corps would like to express gratitude, especially in the light of recent weather-related tragedies, to all first responders, military, volunteer organizations and helping hands.”

Guest speakers for the occasion were Hays County Constable David Peterson, First Sgt. Yvette Garcia, Community Relations Council President Elva Zdeb, Community/ Business Liaison Randolph Goodman and Security instructor Capt. Preston Smith.
