From Susan Jackson
Arlington, VA – During a national leadership symposium held in Atlanta, Ga., Experience Works honored Candy Brown of Valrico, Fla. for her achievements in providing outstanding leadership and customer service for the organization.
Experience Works is a national nonprofit organization that provides employment, training, and community service opportunities for individuals age 55 and older, and operates in 30 states and Puerto Rico, including 50 Florida counties.
“I am so pleased to recognize Candy, who has made significant contributions in improving our organization’s impact and services,” said Sarah Biggers, chief executive officer. “With the commitment, passion, creativity, and perseverance of team members like her, we continue to build upon our 49-year legacy of service to provide skilled workers for the labor market, ensure we are reducing the paradox of poverty, and improve the quality of life for our clients so they can age with dignity and decency.”
In accepting the recognition, Brown said, “At any and all levels, it’s important to stay focused and do what it takes to get the job done. As the Florida state program director, it’s my privilege to work with such a dedicated team of people who work tirelessly on behalf of older workers. Being recognized for doing what seems like ‘the right thing to do’ is quite humbling and much appreciated.”
Brown went on to discuss the opportunities for the future. “We have many more folks we would like to reach in our community through the Senior Community Service Employment Program, and look forward to expanding partnerships to increase awareness of the incredible services we offer,” she said.
