July Civilian Staff Member of the Month

Portia Walker has been a member of the Day Reporting Center (DRC) team since 1996. Portia recognized that many of our clients were illiterate or were functioning on a low reading level. These issues were far beyond the help of G.E.D. classes provided by the DRC. Portia volunteered to attend literacy training provided by a local program sponsored by the United Way in order to help clients learn to read. She has since completed this training and has begun tutoring clients weekly. Portia recognized a problem and took action to enhance the lives of the clients the DRC serves. Congratulations Portia!
