Last Friday, WCBA enjoyed a visit from Greensburg Salem’s Special Education Teacher, Mr. Anthony Greece along with six of his students. They participated in a group tour of our facility and learned about all the services we provide. We always enjoy opportunities to provide tours and share information about our agency.
The Westmoreland County Blind Association was invited to attend an event in Harrisburg earlier this week called “Day on the Hill”. The event was sponsored by UniqueSource. The purpose of the trip was to allow our consumers an opportunity to thank our state representatives and senators for helping to support “My Work, My Choice”.
We attended a dinner on Monday, October 16th at the West Shore Country Club, followed by a day of scheduled meetings with various congressmen on Tuesday, October 17th. During each visit, our consumers and past UniqueSource Employee Award Winners, Michael Kissell and David Marks, met with these congressmen and expressed their appreciation for their recent support. They also provided each congressman with a gift of a “My Work, My Choice” picture, shirt and hat. Additional WCBA staff who participated in the trip included Tim Miller (Executive Director), Amy Matenkosky (Executive Assistant), Karen Booley (Production Manager), and Greg Millar who assisted with our transportation.

Congratulations to Michael Kissell, an amazing co-worker and friend of ours! He received a UniqueSource Achievement Award for demonstrating outstanding and exceptional character in living and coping with disabilities, particularly in the workplace.
The Pittsburgh Tribune Review also recently posted this nice article and video about his award, “Greensburg man receives UniqueSource Achievement Award“.
Thanks again to everyone who attended our 15th Annual Golf Outing! It was great seeing all of you! If you would like to see the event photos visit our Facebook photo album.
To all of those involved with the “My Work My Choice” campaign: We want to thank everyone–government representatives, workshop representatives & staffing, parents, families, friends and especially the special needs individuals for all of the hard work that went into going to Harrisburg and keeping our sheltered workshop programs going. We could not be more proud of the people involved from across all of Pennsylvania who supported this cause for those who needed their voices to be heard! People listened and changes are being made!
