The event featured a networking reception, and President and CEO Nancy Ellis McClenaghan introduced the “i will” concept as featured in the agency’s 2011 annual report.
A “Celebration of Champions” was the focal point of the evening and included honoring several successful program participants and recognizing businesses that have partnered with Goodwill to provide skills training opportunities for participants, hired Goodwill graduates or who have used the agency’s services to help recruit qualified applicants, according to event officials.
