Client Achievement award recognition

Brian Denny of Columbia received statewide recognition recently for his determination and exceptional accomplishments. 

Denny received VR’s Client Achievement award at the SC Vocational Rehabilitation Association (SCVRA) annual meeting on October 28, 2016.

Denny sustained a high level spinal cord injury (C3-C4) while on the job at a building supply company. After the accident he became discouraged trying to find employment, but he knew if someone would give him a chance he had a lot to offer.

After applying for multiple jobs Denny was referred to VR by the Spinal Cord Association. With the support of agency partners, VR staff was able to offer Brian encouragement and services that would eventually lead to successful employment.
