stakeholders who have supported the Intern-Apprentice Program since its inception in 2008. Over the last three years, Monyka Price, Chief of Education has worked diligently with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) to ensure the success of the CPP Intern-Apprentice Program, which has employed 40 CMSD graduates and given them the opportunity to pursue careers at home in Cleveland.

One of those to be recognized was Annette Darby, Executive Director of Post-Secondary Education at CMSD  who has been a champion of the CPP program since conception and has worked within the district to promote the  program to Guidance Counselors, parents and students.

In greeting the attendees, Mayor Jackson asked the members of the first class to remember the message he gave them in 2008, “I told you that the success of this program  depends on you. And from looking around this room you see, you were successful and you helped to make it easier for the classes that followed you.”

The Mayor also recognized the support and commitment of The International Brotherhood of Electric Workers Local 39 and their Business Manager, Charles Carfagna. “Without the support of Local 39 we would not have been able to offer this opportunity.”
