Jean's Story

With an absolute verve for life, people and nature, Jean Haywood joined Goodwill eleven years ago.  Since that time, she has played an important role in the organization serving as the HR Clerk and Safety Officer.  There was a time when Jean wrote the company newsletter, took minutes at Board meetings, posted job announcements, interviewed prospective candidates and kept track of all the Human Resource paperwork.
