Agent of Change
We want to congratulate Deshawn for being named our Participant Agent of Change! Deshawn had difficulty adjusting to DFOY culture when he first came to program, but in January, Deshawn had perfect attendance. Deshawn has gone above and beyond in supporting his activities and also assists staff with participant sign-in. Thanks, Deshawn for your help! It is our pleasure to celebrate you!
Agent of Change
We want to congratulate Justin Perales for being named our Staff Agent of Change here at MS 180! Justin has done a tremendous job at ensuring the program has all of the elements it needs to run smoothly. Justin has taken on the additional responsibility of managing the program log and makes time to understand participants’ individual needs. On behalf of the MS 180 DFOY staff, it is our pleasure to celebrate Justin!
