Paul Jones is our Student Success Story for the month of September. A major life changing event brought him to the Fort Smith Adult Education Center.
Paul dropped out of high school with the hopes of finding a job, He was able to obtain a job as a truck driver for over twenty five years for Davis Iron and Metal. An accident on the job left him paralyzed from the waist down. The doctors told him that he would never walk again; but thirteen years later he was able to walk into the Fort Smith Adult Education Center in July. Paul credits his faith in God for his recovery and determination to carry on each and every day.
At the present time, Paul is working on his GED, CRC, and WAGE certificates. He is expecting to complete everything within a few weeks. He hopes to start a new job that fits his disability at Sykes with his daughter in the near future. We all wish him the best .
