Goodwill Teams Up with TCSS and WGTC for Good
Chanelle Foster never imagined she would learn Forklift Driving skills as a participant in her paid 12-week Career Ready Workshop, but she learned that - and more - thanks to a partnership brought to Troup County School System (TCSS) between Goodwill Industries of the Southern Rivers (GoodwillSR) and West Georgia Technical College (WGTC).
“Driving a forklift was fun. I was able to bond with everyone in the class and that was a new experience for me. It was better than I thought it would be,” said Foster. The 2018 graduate of Troup High School joined ten additional young adults for the continuing education workshop that is set to prepare students for work and life.
Amanda Wilson - Hogansville Elementary
When Amanda Wilson walked into her interview at Hogansville Elementary almost three years ago, she was surprised to find two students sitting across the table from her. She knew at that moment, Hogansville was the place for her. She says, “I was very moved by the value the school was placing on their students’ opinions. I knew immediately that this was where I belonged.”
She believes in her career choice as an English Language Arts and Social Studies to her fifth grade students because, “I love to work with children. I know I am a part of a team providing them with the necessary tools to make their dreams come true.”
