Employment Awards Banquet
Mark your calendar for Oct. 2, 2013 and attend this inspirational event that recognizes outstanding employers and PossAbilities clients. The event will take place at the International Event Center
"They get it" is how one person describes last year's winner of the exclusive John Ellingson Summit Award. Culver's South has for so long and so adeptly employed people with disabilities that PossAbilities selected the restaurant to be honored as the 2012 Summit Award recipient This event is held annually in conjunction with National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Nominating Culver's for its award was our client Josh, who enjoys his rewarding job. At Culver's, Josh delivers trays of food, scoops ice cream, does dishes and cleans the kitchen.
Receiving the Guide Award were Thom Hartmann and Tim Shelly of The Homestead at Rochester for demonstrating acceptance of their PossAbilities workers. Thom remarked, "They aren't just employees. They're like family." Client Mike received our coveted Explorer Award for demonstrating an incredible work ethic during the year. He calls his job at Sodexo "the opportunity of a lifetime."
