A Passion for Sports Leads to a Dream Job

Tommy is a friendly outgoing young man and with a positive attitude and natural leadership skills. He is also a huge fan of sports. Any conversation will show that Tommy has a wealth of knowledge for most sports and statistics and can talk to anyone who is interested. The Arc of Washington County worked with Tommy to identify an ideal job fit and, after some searching, Tommy found a job at the Greencastle Golf Club, an 18-hole championship golf course located within driving distance of his house. As a sports enthusiast and outgoing person, Tommy has taken very well to his role in customer service at the golf club. When he’s not working, Tommy is leading meetings with his self-advocacy group, Legends, or spending time with his fiancé at home.

Tommy C. was provided pre-employment and on-the-job coaching by The Arc of Washington County, a recipient of The Arc@Work’s Innovative Approaches to Community-Based Employment grant.
