John and Louis EOM Award

Louis Wilson

Manager

Transportation

 

Louis has been an employee at DDI for more than 25 years.  He began as a direct care counselor working with the individuals we support before moving to the Transportation Department.  Louis is involved with the day to day operations of the transportation department.  He helps not only the individuals we support but works with family members and other agency staff to resolve any issues or challenges.

 

Louis can always be relied upon to respond swiftly in an emergency situation and on many occasions has helped in the residences on his days off when staff were needed.  Louis volunteers for department and agency functions and is a great cook.  He donates food to most department functions and makes sure there is enough for everyone.  

 

Congratulations to Louis on his Employee of the Month Award!

Physical Education Teacher

Children's Day Program

 

Matt exemplifies the core values of DDI.  He goes above and beyond regularly by connecting DDI with opportunities to give back to our community.  These opportunities engage staff and give students the chance to participate in meaningful activities that have a positive impact on others. 

 

Matt has helped students to collect coats for the homeless as well as organized the “Souper Bowl,” which allows students to have fun while collecting canned goods for those in need.  The students work on skills such as sorting, labeling and making deliveries as part of these initiatives.  Matt’s kindness is contagious and inspires others.

 

Congratulations to Matt on his Employee of the Month Award!
