MIS Awarded Employer of the Year
NC Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services (DVRS), annually presents an employer with the Employer of the Year Award for working with persons with disabilities. Management Information Systems (MIS) was nominated and selected for the work performed with intern, Von Ithipathachai, and for participating in the NC State Forum to share their experience. Von worked with Amanda Hoffner, Senior Systems Analyst, and other MIS staff May 8 – August 25, 2023. DVRS praised MIS for Von’s real-world interview process and the goals established for him to achieve during the internship. He worked with the MIS team to develop a small software app and assisted with another. The primary goal was to provide Von an experience in working in a professional environment. The award is presented in October during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Pitt County staff and intern were honored at a declaration event on Friday, October 27, at the DVRS Greenville office, where Greenville Mayor PJ Connelly proclaimed the day as Disabilities Employment Day in honor of NDEAM.
