Sheila Harrelson began her career with the Central Arkansas Planning and Development District, Inc. (CAPDD) in 2009 as a Career Consultant with the Workforce Investment Act program (WIA). She retired in March of 2019 after ten (10) years of dedicated service.
During her tenure at CAPDD, Sheila “wore many hats”. After spending a number of years working in the Lonoke Workforce Center as a Career Consultant assisting youth and adults in Lonoke County to reach their vocational and educational goals, Sheila transferred to the North Little Rock Workforce Center where she worked with a similar clientele in Pulaski County.
Her next assignment was in the Conway Workforce Center where she worked as a Career Consultant serving customers who lived in Faulkner County. Sheila completed this assignment and returned to the Lonoke Workforce Center where she worked as a Job Placement Specialist with the newly commissioned Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act program (WIOA) providing Follow-Up services to all of the participants who received services throughout the Central Arkansas Workforce Development Area until her retirement.
Sheila will be missed by her co-workers, as well as the program participants whom she so diligently served. All of us here at CAPDD would like to thank Sheila for her service and wish her a happy retirement.
