Goodwill Industries of the Chesapeake, Inc. prepares people to secure and retain employment and build successful independent lives.
Meet Evangeline--a 77 year old mother, grandmother, great grandmother, cancer survivor and caregiver for her sick family members. A friend asked Evangeline what she wanted to do with her life now that she had retired. She told her friend that she wanted to go back to school so that she could get her GED. At 77 years old, Evangeline enrolled in Goodwill's computer and clerical program to learn the computer skills necessary to take the test. After she acquired those skills, she enrolled in Goodwill's GED program in conjunction with BCCC. Evangeline passed the GED test in June and achieved her life goal. She has proved that it's never too late to learn! Congratulations Evangeline!!
