Carlos Sanchez started a job the day after graduation. Not many new graduates can say that.

Carlos recently graduated from the S.C. School for the Deaf and the Blind (SCSDB) where he earned an occupational credential. His hard work earned him a job offer with CINTAS in his hometown of Lexington.

While at SCSDB, he received work experience in the school’s kitchen and Industrial Skills Development Center. He participated in goalball, a sport for athletes who are visually impaired, and several fine arts productions.

“I had a great time and learned many things,” said Carlos. “ I will miss everyone at the SC School for the Deaf and the Blind.”
