After a year of classes, on-the-job training and hours of hard work, 23-year-old Glen Wilson is ready to begin his career as a woodworker at Creative Kitchens in Huntington.

Wilson was one of the first 21 graduates from the Coalfield Development Corp.'s environmental remediation certificate program, honored Wednesday in a ceremony at the West Edge Factory.
