Congratulations to our 2015 Employees of the Year!
Don Simpson Achiever of the Year Award – Kim Edwards
This is Kim’s second time working with our Goodwill. She first came here in 2012 and was doing a great job, when her entrepreneurial spirit took over and she decided to open her own business. She decided to come back to us in September of 2014. Since walking back into these doors, she quickly ascended to assistant manager of Crossgates, then manager of our Centre Street location and was recently asked to oversee production of the E-Commerce department. She has done very well at every task that Goodwill has asked of her and continues to embody our mission daily
