I graduated in the top 95% of my high school class. My counselor told me I should join the military or consider a trade like heating and air conditioning. That’s how it all started. I was fortunate enough to get a job as an apprentice under a welfare program called the Job Training Partnership Act. The federal government paid half my wage.
