Goodwill’s 2012 Legacy Award Winners: Graduate of the Year award went to Michael Reid, Fredrick Gaillard was named Achiever of the Year, Suelene Guiles was selected for the Goodwill Works! Award, Cindy Scarborough was chosen as the 2012 Employee of the Year and Maghan Johnson received the 2012 Barbara Banks Customer Service Award. C&K Systems was recognized as Goodwill’s Corporate Partner of the Year, the Partnerships for People award went to Family Services and Goodwill’s Volunteer of the Year was Robert Calcote. Awards were presented to recipients by Goodwill President and CEO Robert Smith and Goodwill Board Chairman Patrick Bryant.
“We are honored to recognize Goodwill program participants who have successfully completed a Goodwill program and achieved stable employment,” said Smith. “We were also honored to recognize our partners who have helped further Goodwill’s mission of helping people achieve their full potential through the dignity and power of work!”
Each year, Goodwill inducts individuals who have played a positive role in the growth of Goodwill’s into its Hall of Fame. This year’s honoree, Paul Franklin, was instrumental in the facilitation of Goodwill’s first Strategic Plan. Prior to becoming Board Chair, Paul served on the Search Committee as Goodwill’s leadership transitioned. As Chairman, Franklin forged a refinement of the current Goodwill Mission Statement: “To help People Achieve their full potential through the Dignity and Power of Work.”
This broadening of the mission statement led to the tremendous growth of Goodwill’s services. After his Board service, Franklin continues to serve the needs of our community through championing the care and well-being of Senior Citizens, Smith said.
“Paul Franklin is committed to helping Goodwill be a first class organization in order to best provide our services to the community,” said Smith. “His passion and support helped build the Goodwill organization. It is a great honor to induct Paul into the Hall of Fame and recognize him for his dedication and support of Goodwill’s mission.”
