Positive Press

This week’s edition of Positive Press  has a personal connection. Julie Locke, the woman in the first story, is the mother of Dax Locke, who I’ve written about in several previous blog posts here. Dax is still making a huge impact on this world, years after his death.

IDOT’s Student Professionals with Disabilities Program

Student Professionals with Disabilities is a unique program that is giving people the opportunity to work and contribute to society.

Take a look at this short video:


Nick is doing a great job for the Illinois Department of Transportation and he’s not the only one in the program who is succeeding in the workplace as a result of being a part of it.

I’m glad I had the chance to learn more about this program while I produced this video. It’s really cool to see people reaching their full potential in life. Keep up the good work, Nick.
