The Mosaic Center helped me by encouraging me during a very difficult time. I was taking care of my ailing mom and life seemed very hard. Since losing my mother, I have joined the team at KIA Premier in the accounts payable and accounts receivable department. I found the job through Carol at The Mosaic Center who challenged me to apply. I am so thankful that I did. I have been here over a year and I LOVE it. I work for a great manager, Barbara, and am so happy. I am now taking care of my aging father and attend church at Chestnut Baptist. Life is so good! – Tamie: Class 14


I first saw The Mosaic Center as I was driving down Lufkin Avenue one afternoon and wondered “What is that place?” I had recently been laid off from ConAgra and had the time to attend classes, so I enrolled in the Job and Life Core class. The Mosaic Center brought out the leadership in me. I had left home at 18 years old and had been searching for something ever since. The Mosaic Center means salvation to me. I was saved while attending class there under the guidance or Ms. Valetta, Ms. Carol and Ms. Vergie and I thank the Lord for that! I have always believed that life is what you do with it—not what happens to you. I have since put two of my three kids through college (enrolled at the same time) and am now buying a home. I have a great job as the Manager of It’s Fashion in Nacogdoches. I am blessed—I have 3 children and 8.5 grandchildren (another baby due soon). I thank the Lord for The Mosaic Center. – Carla: Class 5
