PRESIDIO — Crystal Barriga is back in school now, a senior at Presidio High. But in the spring, as she prepared for her last summer break at Presidio ISD, she set her sights on one goal: Getting a job.
“A lot of my friends are always wanting jobs,” Barriga said in an interview this week. And when it came to getting a job, Barriga knew who she should talk to.
“When we ask around [about jobs], the school tells us about Workforce,” she said. And so Barriga reached out to Workforce Solutions Borderplex, which quickly found her office work at a local stockyard.
