Albany - - 200 Turner Job Corps students are ready to advance to that next stage in life. 

Excited friends and relatives filled the gymnasium at the Turner site Friday afternoon to cheer on the graduates.

Students received their high school diploma or GED and a trade certification.

Representative Winfred Dukes addressed the graduates about looking forward.   

"They need to know that they need to be persistent in what it is they're doing. They need to make plans, they need to set goals, but must of all they need to have courage," he says.

The Job Corps is a federal program designed to help economically disadvantaged young people find careers by giving them a place to stay and teaching them vocational skills and counseling.
