Scherer Resources was very happy to have 50% of our eligible students placed in community jobs at the end of this school year. One of our students is working at a local community music store. We have a student working for a local remodeling company, and a student working in the restaurant industry. This is a good example of people with special needs exceeding expectations and finding success in multiple different areas. If employers are willing to open themselves up to this under utilized resource then many of the industries in our area could benefit from these dedicated students.
One of the biggest barriers for these students is transportation to and from work. Recently we had some friends of scherer resources donate a bike to a student to help him get to work. Now not only can he be employed but he has his own transportation. Scherer Resources works tirelessly to overcome barriers and provide paths to success for our students and we couldn't be more proud of our community and our students for coming together and setting an example of what is possible.
In the future we look forward to having many more of these success stories as we partner further with local companies to help fill their work needs with reliable, passionate, and dedicated employees.
Thank You All for Your Continued Support!
Keep Soaring to New Heights
