He is active in his community by volunteering in his free time with the Autism Mentorship Program (AMP), the MICC Mentoring Program and is currently the student representative for MICC's Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS). Peers and staff recognized Dustin for being responsible by completing tasks independently and respecting others by listening before speaking.
We are so happy to recognize Dustin in our rejuvenated Participant of the Month program. Congratulations, Dustin!
Read more about Dustin in his own words below:
"I am Dustin Schmidt and I am currently a senior. My favorite thing about being at MICC is that you start as a freshman learning how to take care of yourself and cook, then in a junior year you get a feel for the certificate program and work in areas that are related to it, then in senior year, you get to find yourself a job. Electives I'm currently involved in are Walk, Jog and Run, Seasonal Sports, Rock band, Lego Masters, along with being involved in the MICC Mentorship Program as a mentee, being a mentor in AMP or Autism Mentorship Program, and am the Student Representative in PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention System).
Two fun facts about me are I'm always musical and I like to have a good sense of humor and I think I was picked as the participant of the month because of my resiliency by being flexible in my schedule, my responsibility by doing my tasks a lot without being asked and my respect by respecting others' decisions and letting them talk first before me."
