Student and Volunteer Success Stories

Rebecca Weatherford started working for Goodwill September 2017 when she realized she did not have an HS Diploma. Going through the new hire process, Rebecca went to obtain a copy of her high school transcript, after she reviewed the transcript; she was two credits short from completing her diploma. After speaking to church friends and co-workers, she was motivated her to seek her GED with the help of Goodwill. Attending classes Monday through Thursday, she has continued to progress towards her goals and maintain a steady income.




At the age of 49, Mrs. Weatherford said "I'm proud to say I AM GOODWILL. This program gave me a chance to better myself. My family, church and co-workers all support me."
