Congratulations to Sharon Wallace and Gloria Grehl, new LifeWorks graduates who were awarded Star Student designations by their class coaches.
Sharon and her coach, Beverly Hudgins, determined the best path for her would be an associate degree in nursing because she wants to someday own a facility that houses and cares for the elderly. Beverly contacted a retired RN and prior instructor at Valencia from the Black Nurses’ Association in Orlando who agreed to mentor Sharon, provide guidance in the nursing program/prerequisites and assist her with tutors (as needed). She is also postured to work as a volunteer in a Nursing facility when safety precautions permit.
In nominating Sharon, Beverly said, “This program has provided Sharon the courage and direction required to fulfill the purpose GOD placed within her; becoming a nurse will not be a job for Sharon, it is her calling.”
Gloria’s coach, Marcos Madeiros, shared, “she has made significant progress during the program and is now more confident to look and apply for new job positions. Our faith-based lessons were a strong push to her psychological health.” He praised her recorded online interviews. She also participated in class, encouraging and motivating other classmates and leading by example.
82 men and women and their mentors and families celebrated the successful completion of the intensive 12-week training program. LifeWorks has prepared them for in-demand career jobs, and they are headed on a new path in the new year!DONATE TODAY
