Meet Sheila

Sheila came to Goodwill NCW ready to learn new skills and take on new challenges.

Thanks to a partnership between the Wisconsin Rapids Goodwill store and Opportunity Development Centers, Sheila completed training to develop job skills. Her growth was tremendous. Her passion for learning extended to helping others master tasks too, which was inspiring for her leaders to see. After the program ended, Sheila was offered a position as a Goodwill team member.

“We are happy to have Sheila as a permanent part of the Goodwill team where she will be able continue to work on her skills and impact others,” Jackie Clayton, Store Team Leader at Wisconsin Rapids Goodwill, said.
