Terri Brandon literally picked up a phone book and started calling people to find work seven years ago. Today she has seven years at Mattress Gallery in Corinth where she is now store manager. “I was an at-home mom until my daughter went to school,” said Brandon. She went to school for a year, but soon needed to find work. During a round of random calls, she found Mattress Gallery owner Jerry Eskridge. “I am more grateful than he will ever know for the opportunity he gave me,” she said. Brandon stated not many people would take a chance on someone unemployed for so long. Most of all, she said she gives God the credit for her success. Brandon's 15-year-old daughter, Lauren Wilbanks, is a recent Student of the Month at Corinth Middle School.
