    My Story: Samuel Morales

    After successfully serving in the U.S. Army for 21 years, I retired and was ready for a second career. I had experience in Medical Supply Logistics; however, I found myself leaving the military without a degree or certification, and wondering if I would be able to find a job. My military experience unfortunately did not translate as well as I had hoped, leaving me frustrated and fearful of how I would take care of my family as we transitioned into the civilian world.

    It was then that I found out about Goodwill San Antonio’s (TX) Good Careers Academy (GCA). The Pharmacy Technician program was exactly what I needed to complement the logistics experience I had gained while serving in the Army. Once I spoke with the knowledgeable staff at GCA, I knew this was a positive way to position myself for employment on a military installation and give back to my brothers and sisters in arms. More importantly, I knew if I saw my way through and obtained a certification, I would be able to provide stability and security for my family.

    I enrolled at GCA, and am now getting the training I need to transition into a promising new career as a Pharmacy Technician, a high-demand, high-growth occupation in our area. Good Careers Academy is providing me with the education, tools and resources to be successful. Today, I no longer worry about how I will take care of my family. I am on the path to a new career and an even brighter future.
