Secretary of Labor & Industry, Jerry Oleksiak, has announced that Shannon Austin will serve as the new Executive Director of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR). An article from the Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association (RCPA) stated that Ms. Austin expressed her desire to “move the needle in the state” by increasing employment opportunities including positions beyond entry level jobs and promoting movement of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
CILCP looks forward to joining Ms. Austin in moving that needle! And a special shout out to Ryan Hyde who served as the Acting OVR Executive Director for ten months! THANK YOU, RYAN!
