Jamall Walker, from Blackstone, VA, graduated from Nottoway County High School. He worked in various jobs after graduation, but was not finding his "career." He read about Southside Virginia Community College's Power Line Worker program in the newspaper and began to research this line of work.
Jamall applied to the SVCC Power Line Worker class that began in September of 2017. He graduated in November of that year and his career was launched. He works for Southside Electric Cooperative and is an apprenticeship lineman. He recently competed in the Gaff-n-Go Lineman's and Equipment Operation Rodeo.
His future is bright and he credits his SVCC instructors for a great beginning!
