Veronica Bell:  “Everything that GWTP taught me, I apply everyday to my job here at Terrace Paper Company,” says Veronica Bell. As a single-mother struggling to make ends meet Veronica worked various minimum wage jobs but she soon wanted to learn a new trade and better her situation. Veronica was unemployed for several months when she saw an advertisement for GWTP’s Shipping and Receiving Training Program in a church bulletin. Veronica decided to apply and began her 12-week training.
