Goodwill’s team was asked to visit the school to talk with students about the many programs and services that Goodwill can offer. Marketing Specialist, Sharon Hannon, along with Katie Wietmarschen, Community Preparation Program Manager and advocates Tim Wissel and LaShonda Brady explained how Goodwill can help individuals to learn about the world of work and to get jobs in the community. The West Side Montessori students seemed to enjoy the multi-faceted presentation which included a discussion of the Community Preparation aspects of the program as well as personal testimonials about the quality of the program from Tim and LaShonda. All students were cordially invited to come to Ohio Valley Goodwill’s headquarters for a tour in the future. “At Goodwill, we think it’s important to provide as much community outreach as possible about our programs and services and especially to students who are preparing to move into the world of work,” said Hannon, Goodwill Marketing Specialist.
