In the news of pending closure, One Stop staff responded to a call for help at the Bluefield Beverage Company, Bluefield, Virginia. A first for our region in designing a rapid response Job Expo & Career Fair model that could be used based upon needs of the community.
One Stop staff were shocked to find they had been chosen to participant in a grant funded Americorps program slated for the program year 2011-2012. WIA 1 received four corp members and they exceeded our expectations assisting us to meet the mandatory requirements and helping us to finish the project successfully!
After two years failing to meet performance in WIA 1, consistent management played a key role in aligning program outcomes with performance measures. Working with our local WIB board, we made a dream come true. Our program year 2012 end with great satisfaction as we met or exceeded our mandatory performance measures.
Bluefield College Alumni were invited back to the 1st Annual Professional Business Womens Conference held on site, October 11, 2013. Certainl I was exstatic to return and present a workshop entitled, "Using Successful Technology in Leadership".
