Albany-- The Job Corps is celebrating forty years, and its third largest center joined in the party.

Dignitaries toured the Turner Job Corps Campus, admiring its new Commercial Driver's License Truck Driving School and pediatric clinic. County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard even issued a proclamation, recognizing the center's impact in the area.

"Job Corps is the best kept training secret in the country," said Center Director Jennifer Young "A recent study proved that for every dollar put into the Job Corps, the tax payers receive two dollars and two cents back."

Turner Job Corps will be having fortieth anniversary events all year. The Albany Center, however, is only 37 years old.
