Opportunity Enterprises JobSource client David Moscoe of Chesterton received the 2012 Justin Dart Personal Achievement Award, an annual honor given by the Indiana Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (INARF) to a person with disabilities who maximized their skills to achieve their chosen goals.

The award was presented in Indianapolis on March 14 at the 2012 INARF Annual Conference. It is named in honor of Justin Dart, who was a major architect of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Moscoe was honored for his achievements and growth in employment. Through the employment support services he receives through the JobSource program at OE, he has gained the confidence and skills needed to expand his range of abilities and move into jobs requiring greater skill. An employee at Target in Valparaiso, Moscoe has begun working in other positions, including stocking and cashiering.

To reward his superior work ethic and attitude, his supervisors at the store named Moscoe a “Great Team Hero” for the month of October, 2011. According to his nominator for that award, “David has done nothing but impress since he was hired on to our team. David wasted no time becoming a staple at the front end with his positive attitude, relentless work ethic, and braving the unpredictable weather of Northwest Indiana, all with a smile.”

INARF is the primary membership organization representing agencies providing services to individuals with disabilities. For more information, see
