20 Dec Hutton Alum Back for Christmas Break
Today we’d like to spotlight Hutton alum Tim McPeak, who is back visiting for Christmas break!
Tim is attending the Curlew Job Corps, where he has chosen to pursue Cement Masonry. He will be receiving his certificate of completion this spring. To date, he has become OSHA certified, scaffolding and green certified and has learned skills to teach and train others in the field, much like a foreman.
What do you like about Job Corps?
“People there strive to do their best. You learn how to deal with different types of people every day. I appreciate that job corps allows me to complete drivers ed, receive certifications that will help me with my career and it teaches me how to work hard.”
Tim says that being a part of sports teams like track, cross country and basketball at West Valley High School helped him to learn how to work well with others and to help people achieve their goals. In high school, he lettered in track, cross country, basketball and football!
Tim also attended the Washington Youth Academy during his junior year of high school, where he earned high school credits in a military setting. He says he misses Youth Academy because he enjoyed the structure and routine environment – it made the days go by fast. He misses the people there as well.
What did you like about living at Hutton?
“I got to grow up with different age groups that taught me how to be patient. Hutton allowed me to grow up in a family environment, which I didn’t always have. One of my highlights was our 2015 Hutton trip to Disneyland.”
We asked him what he is looking forward to, once he completes Job Corps and he said having his own place, having money to buy things for himself, having the independence of growing up and most importantly, he’s looking forward to experiencing the world.
We can’t wait to see where Tim’s bright future takes him!
