WIOA SUCCESS STORIES
Ms. Brittany Malone inquired about the WIOA program after being out of work for a few years. She worked on temporary assignments, but nothing full-time and permanent. After an initial assessment, the Fayetteville Workforce Center staff deemed Brittany eligible for services under the WIOA Adult program. She received her CDL certification at Northwest Technical Institute (NWTI) in Springdale, Arkansas and obtained her CDL license.
She now has her own truck and works for Western Express Trucking Company as an over-the-road (OTR) driver and is earning a good wage traveling 2500 – 3500 miles a week. Brittany stated “That’s when my life changed for the best. My caseworker understood my struggle, listened to my story, and did whatever was allowed to help me to get back on my feet. Now, I am working full-time, learning a new trade every day and I can start planning a brighter future for myself and my family. Thank you so much WIOA for EVERYTHING!!”
