Meet Lillie

Workforce Challenge

Lillie's work experience was limited to the fast food industry. Realizing that training and education would help her obtain a better-paying job, Lillie began college to earn a BS in Nursing. She struggled financially through three and a half years of college before she heard about WIA.

Workforce Solution

Lillie came into the Arkansas Workforce Center in Hot Springs seeking assistance for her last 2 semesters of RN training. Lillie was approved to receive funding through WIA to help cover the costs of training. This funding assisted with tuition, books, testing fees, and other supplies.

Outcomes & Benefits

Lillie received her BS in Nursing in May, 2010. She has been working full time since graduation and enjoys her nursing career and helping others.
