Goodwill recognizes volunteers

Apr. 25, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Goodwill Industries of KYOWVA's 2013 annual meeting brought recognition and resignation Wednesday afternoon at its Virginia Avenue location.

Executive director Kimberly B. Lewis announced her resignation effective June 14 to take a similar position at Goodwill Industries of East Texas in Tyler, Texas. Lewis has served with Goodwill of the KYOWVA Area for 10 years.

Goodwill also presented two individuals and an organization with awards for the past year.

Vicky Perdue was named 2012 Consumer of the Year for her accomplishments during her Goodwill training and for continuing her education at Mountwest Community and Technical College. She frequently serves as a motivational speaker for Goodwill's classes and was inducted into Mountwest's honor society in August.

Student of the Year honors were bestowed on Darrell Ervin who graduated from the medical office skills training program in March. Ervin combined his previous college credits with credits earned through Mountwest's dual-enrollment program to set him on the path to earning an associate's degree in the summer. He plans to enter Marshall University in the fall.

The Huntington Museum of Art was named Goodwill's Partner of the Year for providing after-school activities for students at the Scott Community Center in 2011 and 2012.
