Todd Birch, CEO of Aspirus Riverview Hospitals and Clinics in Wisconsin Rapids, recently had the honor of speaking to the third Project SEARCH graduating class to complete their certificate program at the hospital. The graduates, pictured here with support staff from ODC, DVR and the Wisconsin Rapids School District, were all smiles.
“There is much to celebrate this evening as one chapter is ending and another is just beginning. Over the last year, these young adults have proven that they have the skills to succeed in today’s world. By virtue of their efforts, energy and perseverance, they have earned the right to walk across this stage and head out on the next part of their journey.
These interns exceeded our expectations with their eagerness to learn and belief that all work is important. They embedded themselves in our hearts and became a part of our family. We are not only a different organization, we are a better organization.
As you head out into the world, know that we will all miss you.”
