Wanda Reid

Administrative Assistant

I’m Wanda Reid, Administrative Assistant for YIPE in Iredell County and a proud native of Statesville, NC. I have an Associates Degree in Office Systems Technology from Mitchell Community College (2007) and a Bachelors of Administration Degree from Strayer University (2013). I came to YIPE in 2018 from the Iredell Council on Aging Title V Program. Through this program I had previously volunteered for two years for Goodwill Workforce Career Connections here in Statesville. I assisted adults (young and old) with completing online job applications and resume creation. In February 2020, I completed my volunteer work and training from the Title V Program through YIPE in Iredell County. Now I use the skills that I have learned (academically and professionally) to help our youth and I find such joy in doing that.
