WOWT: Project Employment Helps Woman Find Her Passion

Published: Jan. 4, 2015

Six months ago, Alexandra Dunlap was struggling.

"I was working at the gas station and it wasn’t helping me support my needs, and I needed something else," she said.

Unhappy, and looking for something new, she reached out to Project Employment - a program through Goodwill and Project Everlast that teaches foster kids the skills to land a job.

Now, instead of cleaning countertops at the gas station, she's sterilizing surgical instruments at Methodist Hospital.

Tom Whitmire, Alexandra's supervisor at Methodist tells WOWT's Jenna Jaynes he has been impressed by Alex and hope she stays with Methodist.
