Meet Kim

Workforce Challenge

Kim came to the Workforce Center for help to get her GED & improve her skills so she can become a Radiologic Tech. She was going through an ugly divorce and recovering from drugs and alcohol abuse. She has two children that she was caring for and knew she needed to improve her life to make their lives better.

Workforce Solution

The WFC sponsored her GED testing with the local Adult Ed. They enrolled Kim in their Success UnLimited track. This enabled Kim to leapfrog over developmental courses at college and to accelerate her learning in just one semester so that she would enter credit-bearing classes faster and more successfully. The WFC continued to work with Kim and sponsor some of her college courses as well as pay for her work clothes.

Outcomes & Benefits

Kim completed her training and has been a Radiologic Tech at Mercy Medical for two years. Due to her success, she was the speaker at the 2016 Adult Ed graduation ceremony in Durango. She overcame many personal obstacles with the help of her workforce counselor, employer, friends and her teachers. She is stalwart and everything we could want in one of our combined success stories.
