Inspirational Quote: “For 80 years, Goodwill Industries of North Florida has faithfully served our communities teaching the importance of hard work and connecting those with a drive and dream with the employment and educational resources they need to succeed. It is a tremendous honor to serve as the Chair of the Goodwill Board and I am inspired each day by the work our team does to support the families in our 14 county region from Gainesville to Jacksonville and all parts in between. The impact of this incredible organization will only continue to grow, and while we rightfully take this moment to reflect on the good works and progress of our past, today we look even more eagerly to the future.”
