Celebrating our amazing team
Together, we are better! We recently celebrated milestone anniversaries of 39 of our wonderful Opportunity Partners staff members.
With an amazing combined 365 years of service to the mission of OP, it is truly humbling to reflect on the dedication of these individuals who have committed 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and even 30 years to OP!
Representing all areas of the organization, including residential, day program, work skills and administration, these employees have touched nearly every part of our company. Some started as temporary workers and have advanced to management positions. Some started in the program area and transferred into new opportunities in finance or other administrative areas. All have given their time and talent to advance the quality of life for people with disabilities.
Here’s what they said at a luncheon on July 9 in their honor.
