Brooke Davis, of Mineral City, started clearing the path to her future in 2019 when she achieved her GED through Buckeye Career Center. Davis grew up on a farm and naturally gravitated to the BCC Adult Education Heavy Equipment/ CDL A Operator program because of her love of running equipment. Davis, now age 22, recently graduated from the program and is employed in the Operating Engineer’s Union. Her instructor, Mr. Don Young, calls her a dedicated student of the trade. “She was determined to do an excellent job, always wanting to do new things. She has the will and desire to become a great operating engineer,” said Young.

Davis received assistance from OhioMeansJobs Stark & Tuscarawas County, allowing her the opportunity to completely fund her continued education at Buckeye, working with Program Specialist Jennifer Alam. “I have observed a tenacity in Brooke that applies to not only the Heavy Equipment program, but also her life in general, so I have no doubt that she will continue to excel in her chosen field,” commented Alam.
