Former Cadet & Graduate - Joel Carrillo

Oct
20

Hi my name is Joel Carrillo. I graduated from LCA June of 2003. I was on Team 5.  I decided to attend LCA when I was 16 years old.  I was a high school dropout and lived in a bad neighborhood. I had no positive role models in my life. I was hanging out with the wrong crowd. I needed some discipline and LCA was perfect for me. Lincoln's Challenge Academy helped me grow up and I could finally see life in a more positive manner. I enlisted in the Army National Guard and never looked back. I held the rank of Specialist.  I would love to help future cadets.

Nicholas A Hickman Class 6 - 96

Oct

I left LCA and went on to the Illinois National Guard as a 62 bravo. I worked as a heavy equipment and a truck mechanic in my personal life. I then started driving tractor trailers hauling heavy equipment. I moved on into the recovery world operating 50 ton wreckers (tractor trailer tow trucks), which took me to California and Texas.  I recently moved back here to Illinois to be closer to my family and children here. I am currently driving a flatbed tractor trailer hauling steel. I travel the area between St. Louis and Chicago often. I credit LCA very much for the basis of my life.
