Goodwill Manasota's Vice President Nominated For International Awards
Goodwill Manasota vice president Margie Genter, who oversees the organization’s mission services, has recently been nominated for two distinguished awards presented annually by Goodwill Industries International (GII). The recognition acknowledges Genter’s leadership and 28 years of trailblazing impact on the nonprofit, which serves Sarasota, Manatee, Desoto and Hardee counties. The first nomination is for the Edgar J. Helms Award for Staff, named for the founder of Goodwill Industries, which is presented to an individual who exemplifies the mission of Goodwill and the Rev. Helms’ values of unselfish service to people with disabilities. Genter’s other nomination is for the Robert E. Charlotte Watkins Award for Excellence in Mission Advancement, which honors achievement by a local Goodwill organization in advancing the Goodwill mission by serving persons with disabilities or other barriers to employment. The awards will be presented during the GII Spring Conference in Houston, Texas this April.
