Countless people serve our communities each day, but are often overlooked. COVID-19 has made us all better understand the significant role employees play in our everyday lives. We want to give a special shout-out to Will Smith, Assistant Director of Vocational Services who is one of those everyday heroes that embodies what is best about Cape Fear Vocational Services.

During this unprecedented time, Will’s creativity in job development strategies has assisted 26 clients find jobs since March 15th! He also was instrumental in developing a plan for remote new hire training for our Employment Specialists and a Community Inclusion Program that is now implemented throughout the state. “Will demonstrates compassion, integrity, adaptability, and creativity and is one of the best staff I’ve had the pleasure to work with” says Kevin Cook, Regional Director of Vocational Services.

Will was one of our highest performing Employment Specialists. Since becoming the Assistant Director for Forsyth, Surry, Stokes, and Yadkin counties, he has revitalized the service area and developed strong relationships with VR, employers, participants, and staff.

Thank you Will!
