James E. Jones Healthcare Excellence Award

Taciyona Duckett is a young woman on a mission and with a plan for her life: military service, college and eventually a career as a pediatric nurse. But to get where she is now, she had to reach a turning point and make the decision to do something positive with her life. She started by enrolling in Goodwill’s WIOA program for youth ages 18-24. After improving her reading and math skills, Taciyona enrolled in Goodwill’s Certified Nurse Aide training program, launching the healthcare career that has always been her dream.
