We are proud to announce the graduation of the fourth cohort of Certified Nursing Assistant students from the Healthcare Career Pathway program – Empowered Aging’s partnership with Opportunity Junction and Concord’s Mt. Diablo Adult Education. The 12-week training course is twice the length required by the state, and because of the intensive training, 19 newly minted graduates are going directly into the workforce with the equivalent of one year of work experience. Our Executive Director, Susannah Meyer, who also holds office as Vice Mayor for the City of Brentwood, was invited to speak during the ceremony. After the graduation, she stated, “I appreciate the opportunity in my role as an elected official to commemorate such a special event and an inspirational group of students. I can’t wait to see all they do for those they go on to serve in our community.”
