Disability Mentoring Day 2016 a Great Success
Thirty-Eight area high school students and staff came together on October 20th for Disability Mentoring Day hosted by 3Rivers.
Erica Christie, Director of Supports and Services at 3Rivers, challenged everyone to “take a nugget (of information) from each presenter throughout the day.”
The day was broken down into three sessions. The morning was devoted to educational opportunities, job hunting resources and health care.
Julie Unruh, a local author and publisher, and Carrie Greenwood, Program Director at Kansas Youth Empowerment Academy (KYEA) presented during the lunch hour. Each spoke about her disability, navigating her education and career while encouraging the students to keep working toward their own goals and never to give up.
Area business leaders and representatives joined the event in the afternoon to lead breakout groups to talk about resumes, job applications and interviews skills with the students.
Our appreciation goes out to all of the individuals, businesses and organizations who participated in the event. Three Rivers especially thanks our DMD sponsors: Amerigroup, Sunflower Health Plan, MS Biotec, WTC, and Highland Community College.
