BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – BAC employee Telisha Griffin was recently recognized as the winner of the SourceAmerica – AbilityOne William M. Usdane Award in honor of her outstanding achievement and exceptional character at its annual Xforce conference in Anaheim, California.
As a cook at the dining facility at Patrick Space Force Base on Florida’s Space Coast, Griffin’s high energy and warm personality have made her a favorite with soldiers on the base, and one of Griffin’s co-workers describes her as “a smile that can light up a room.”
Griffin says she always wants to brighten up their day, especially those who are far from home. Griffin quickly moved up in her position due to her strong work ethic and cooking skills.
The SourceAmerica achievement awards recognize nonprofits, employees, and business partners for their exceptional work ethic, success, and leadership in advancing inclusion for people with disabilities.
These awards highlight successes in disability employment, as approximately 60 percent of working-age people with disabilities are currently unemployed.
“People with disabilities bring unique insights and talents to the nation’s workforce,” said Richard Belden, SourceAmerica president and chief executive officer.
“SourceAmerica takes pride in celebrating the achievements of these award winners who have demonstrated leadership, dedication, and the passion to inspire others to work towards a more inclusive workforce.”
