Ekundayo “Dayo” Williams just graduated, and she shared her thoughts with us:

“I am thankful for the knowledge I learned from the DSP II program. With the new tools, ideas and techniques that I learned I will be able to perform my job in a professional and satisfying way that puts value in the lives of the people I support. I will make use of the knowledge to help the people we support build a quality of life in the community.”
