Meet Isiah McCloud: Project WOW Participant and JEVS Human Services Strictly Business Inspiration Award Winner 2019
In high school, Isiah spent more time in suspension than in class. He dropped out and worked a series of low-wage fast food jobs before realizing he needed to get his high school diploma to move ahead. He found JEVS Project WOW and thrived in the supportive environment, earning a high school diploma and property maintenance credentials.
