CJ Bannister, a veteran who serves as the director of Goodwill Manasota's Veterans Services Program, was honored by Jewish Family & Children’s Service (JFCS) of the Suncoast during its 5th annual Tribute to Veterans Service to Community Awards Luncheon. Bannister served in the US Air Force, where she worked as a Crew Chief for three years and subsequently cross–trained to be a paralegal and worked with the JAG for the remainder of her service. She earned the rank of Staff Sergeant and earned many awards and medals before ending her military career as a non-commissioned officer in 2001. Bannister, who was nominated for the honor by Sarasota County Veterans Services, was hired in 2014 to lead Goodwill’s efforts to provide services to returning veterans, who face heightened risks of unemployment, personal problems and homelessness. She participates in Goodwill's Veteran's Task Force and assists numerous veterans’ organizations throughout the community.
