My Story: Jeremy Wallace
I learned about Goodwill Industries® of Knoxville through my school, and started at Goodwill® right after I graduated. I started in their job training program in 2003. I went through their work adjustment program, and they helped me get my driver’s license through their driver’s ed program.
I learned to drive a fork lift, to load and unload trucks and to run balers. I now work at Goodwill’s material recycling facility. I’ve been with them for seven years.
I learned a lot of good trades and Goodwill helped me with people skills and everything. I now volunteer with the fire department. I’m happy Goodwill’s there to help, placing people in jobs that they’re capable of doing.
