CIMC Intermodal Equipment and Lynwood Community Adult School Partner to Offer ESL Classes for Employees

Today marks a momentous occasion for Lynwood Community Adult School and CIMC Intermodal Equipment​ (CIMC-IE)!  

At the request of CIMC-IE's CEO, Mr, Frank Sonzala, a work site education partnership has been forged between our two organizations. Today is the first day of a 4 hour/week English as a Second Language class on the premises of CIMC-IE in South Gate.

Mr. Sonzala's motive for offering the class is to improve the lives of the CIMC-IE employees, both personally and professionally, by providing classes conveniently located at work. What a wonderful benefit to the employees to only have to invest a little of their personal time along with the company-paid time to open the doors to a world of possibilities by being able to speak two languages!
