2018 Partner of the Year Awardee's

West Region
 Boise State University’s High School Equivalency Program

Ileana Cordova accepting the West Region Distinguished Partner of the Year Award on behalf of Boise State University High School Equivalency Program (HEP). CC Idaho staff at Employment & Training (E&T) have partnered with Ileana for the last 10 years. Anytime our staff has a client who is need of their GED, Ileana makes herself available almost immediately. Both programs help each other recruit clients in need. Ileana also plays an instrumental role in coordinating our Transition Team Meetings which are composed of multiple representatives from organizations who serve the farmworker community. Each year she also helps us with our coat distribution for needy families in the area. Ileana is a major advocate for farmworkers.  “Ileana is very generous, open, and willing to assist anyone here at CC Idaho with recruitment, new ideas, and upcoming events”, says Ercilia Gomez, E&T Counselor. We are lucky to work alongside Ileana Cordova.

Central Region
South Central Community Action Partnership

Ken Robinette accepting Central Region’s 2018 Distinguished Partner of the Year Award on behalf of South Central Community Action Partnership (SCAAP). SCAAP alongside their Self-Help Housing program has provided CC Idaho and its YouthBuild program several worksite locations for participants. The worksites include power tools, construction equipment, safety training, leadership skill development, and a chance for the participants to give back to their community. This partnership has generated 69 Home Builder Certifications within the YouthBuild program, along with helping families and individuals fulfill their dreams of becoming homeowners. We’ve had this partnership for about 4 years, but Ken has been part of CC Idaho’s journey for over 25 years. CC Idaho extends a heartfelt thank you to Ken Robinette, Chad Whitaker, and Kyle Myers for their dedication to helping CC Idaho serve its mission. 

East Region
Sage Tech Truck Driving School

Lynn Jorgensen accepting the 2018 East Region Distinguished Partner of the Year Award on behalf of Sage Tech Truck Driving School in Blackfoot, Idaho. Lynn has been the director of the school for over 10 years. Many of our qualifying clients are unable to afford the pricing set at Sage, therefore Lynn has worked with CC Idaho’s Employment & Training (E&T) department to offer our clients a lower cost so that they can afford training at Sage. “Lynn always works with our budget, and a lot of times he even works with our clients’ limited English”, says Rocio Rojo, E&T Counselor. He has translated a lot of his CDL practice tests to Spanish to meet the needs of CC Idaho clients. You can’t find Spanish CDL books at the local DMV, but you can find them with Lynn at Sage. He even developed a free website for students to access the practice test. We are so proud to have Lynn as a friend and business partner.
