Shane Padgett is living his dream of being a long haul trucker running cargo and freight from coast to coast. Shane, who lives in the Project E3 targeted community of Martinsville, Virginia, worked with Project E3 to get the skills and support he needed to help himself and his family thrive in an economically challenged community.
In today's Workforce Studio podcast, Shane talks about some of the challenges he's experienced on his path to employment, and the wrap-around supports he and his family received from Project E3. @JohnWalsh, Project E3's Project Manager, joined the show to talk about E3's approach to working to empower community members, and E3 CoP member @CherieTakemoto also joined in.
Hats off to Shane, John, and Cherie!
