My name is Jack and I work for Movies 10. I’ve been there since August, 2017. I like this job because the commute is easier for me than my previous job. It’s closer to home. I love my job and I am proud of my job. I have co-workers who are nice and I am good at my job. It was hard to leave my friends at my other job but I had help from my Employment Specialist, Andrew. My Employment Navigator was the best. I love getting free popcorn! I am saving my money. I volunteer at the Fire House when I am not working. I help keep the Fire Engines clean.
My name is Tom and I have always loved plants. After high school, Tom got a job working for a local florist. However, he did not get to work with the plants as he planned. Even though he did not get to work with the plants, he stayed at that job for 15 years until his position was eventually eliminated. After his position was eliminated, he eventually became a consumer at St. John's. Working with the Employment navigator at St. John's, two years ago, Tom found his current position at Lowe’s Home Improvement in Wilmington. Now, Tom is a resident expert on hydration and plant care, and continues to take on new responsibilities. He makes great money too! Tom’s passion for plants has been an asset to his team and workplace. Judith, the HR Manager for the store recently said, “Tom is a huge part of our Lowe’s family and we are so proud of him.” According to Lowe’s inclusivity statement, 'inclusion means creating a place where everyone has the opportunity to grow and succeed.' We thank Lowe’s for their commitment to inclusion and for living out their corporate values – it is evident in Tom’s success.
My name is Kendall and I work at Camp Bow Wow. I earn a check to buy things which teaches me how to be independent with my finances. I enjoy working with animals and contributing to my community. My job was easy because my teachers at Project SEARCH found the job for me before I graduated. Project SEARCH helped me. I told the teachers that I wanted to work with animals and they found me the job at Camp Bow Wow in April, months before I graduated. I love working with the animals, all the different kinds of dogs. I like working with co- workers.
