Participant of the Month (Community): Graham
Graham has proven himself to be a dedicated and hardworking individual who strives to be a role model for his peers. Shortly after experiencing a job loss, he wasted no time in seeking out new opportunities. His determination paid off when he landed a job at Byerly's, impressing his new employer. Staff commented, “He always has a positive attitude and that does not go unnoticed and is always appreciated by participants and staff!”
Two fun facts about Graham are 1) he’s met Mark Wahlberg, and 2) He’s met Vikings quarterback Josh Dobbs.
As an MICC Community participant, he enjoys attending various social activities such as making popovers and attending a darts tournament with a staff member.
In Graham's own words, "I think that I've been recognized as the Participant of the Month because I'm always trying to include people to hang out with me. I always have a smile on my face, and I have a positive attitude no matter what is going on. And I am a naturally friendly person."
MICC is honored to have individuals like Graham in our community who embody these values and set an example for us all. Congratulations!
