Best Blogger Tips
Congratulations to our Spanish Catholic Center's Green Construction Training Program Class of 2012! Today they participated in a special graduation ceremony in downtown Washington to celebrate their accomplishments. All graduates are equipped with specialized training in green construction technology, giving them the tools they need to find stable and meaningful employment in a growing industry. 

"You are in so many ways the future. So many organizations and agencies will benefit from your skills. It's inspiring to see how seriously you take your training," said Fr. Mario Dorsonville, Director of the Spanish Catholic Center. 

Special thanks to the Mayor's Office on Latino Affairs, Clark Concrete (part of Clark Construction) and the National Council of La Raza for their support of the construction program and the graduates. 

Join us in congratulating the 51 graduates on their monumental accomplishment! Scroll down to see pictures from today's ceremony.
